Septic System Information

I don’t have a septic system and would like to install one. What do I need to do? 

If you are interested in installing a septic system, you will first need to get an application from our office. The Board must review and approve all septic applications. Our office will contact you for pick-up once the application is approved and signed. For a printable PDF version of the CLWSA Wastewater System Application click HERE.

Below is a button link to a digital version of the Association’s Wastewater System Application. This version is filled out entirely online using DocuSign for digital signatures. Once the applicant sign it, the applicaiton is automatically sent back to the CLWSA office and the Board Secretary for signature. Be sure to have a digital copy of your plat map with locations and distances between any potable water source and the proposed sewer vault/septic tank and leach field. Attach it to the digital form in order to complete the application.

You would then take it to Larimer County for further processing. Permits are given by the Larimer County Department of Health & Environment, specifically the On-site Wastewater Treatment System (OWTS) division.
They can be reached at (970)498-6775. Or click HERE for their website.
