In 2017, Emmons County Public Health and Kidder County District Health Unit Boards of Health adopted the above statewide septic system code. This requires that all installers are licensed and that every new or updated septic system is permitted and inspected. Emmons County and Kidder County contract environmental health services through Western Plains Public Health to perform these duties. If you have questions, please contact your respective health unit or call us directly at 701-667-3370. We look forward to working with all of you in the future!
