Water and Sewer Petitions | Print |

In Fulton County, homeowners have their homes on either sanitary sewer or septic systems. In existing areas where sewer is currently unavailable and failed septic tanks are beginning to show up, homeowners can petition the County to extend sanitary sewer to their homes. Upon receipt of a petition, Technical Services staff will review the area to determine if sanitary sewer can reach the petitioners and will contact the homeowners.

If the conditions are favorable, a preliminary design will be completed for the sewer extension and a package will be submitted to the Fulton County Board of Commissioners for approval of the petition. Upon approval, final design and installation can occur. During the process, a homeowners meeting is set up to explain the petition process, design impacts and construction process. Any easements that may be required from the petitioners are to be donations as part of the petition process.
