To Obtain a Septic Permit
Travis County approval is required prior to the installation and/or operation of an on-site sewage facility (septic system).
The Travis County Code is the codification of Court Orders representing the policies and procedures of Travis County. The documents presented here are provided for the convenience of the user of the Code and do not constitute the official Travis County Code.
Please note: This is a compilation of this portion of the Travis County Code as adopted and amended from time to time by various orders of the Travis County Commissioners Court. Care has been taken in converting these documents to electronic format, however, from time to time errors may occur. Furthermore, in the event of any conflict between this compilation and the text of any actual order of the Travis County Commissioners Court in the records of the Travis County Clerk, the latter shall control. Accordingly, this compilation is provided "as is" without any warranty of any kind as to its correctness.
