Groundwater Table Monitoring

To better protect groundwater, a minimum of 48 inches is the required separation between the bottom of the absorption system and highest groundwater table. If your lot is suspected of, or has been identified as having a high groundwater table, then it is the owner's responsibility to contact Wasatch County Health Department and fill out the application for groundwater monitoring. Groundwater monitoring shall be conducted by the owner for a period of one year, with more frequent readings from early spring through late summer. A second year of monitoring may be required during dry years where water precipitation is less than 85 percent of the norm. All water monitoring data must be submitted to the Environmental Health office prior to the issuance of the septic permit.
