Septic Tank Testing

Sanitarians inspect individual water supply systems and on-site sewage disposal systems to evaluate the systems for compliance with applicable laws and sanitary standards. The seller, the buyer, or the lender may make requests for evaluation by contacting Environmental Health at (304) 523-6483, extension 262. Additionally, Form SG-55 (linked below) must be completed and returned to the Cabell-Huntington Health Department prior to an inspection of the property. There is no fee for services in Cabell County, however, the Office of Laboratory Services charges $15 per water sample for bacteriological analysis and a $5 handling fee.
