Public Works

Septic Systems

Private Wastewater Disposal systems are installed in areas where no public sewers are available. New lots must be at least 3 acres for a septic system. A permit is required for all new systems and repairs to existing systems. Systems are inspected to ensure compliance with Missouri Department of Health rules. 

To apply for a sewage permit, contact Brad Phelps at bphelps@indepmo.org or 816-325-7617.
