Fremont County Environmental Health is part of the Fremont County Building Department and serves all of the unincorporated portions of Fremont County with some programs extending into Cañon City, Florence, Williamsburg, Rockvale, Coal Creek and Brookside.

Septic System Permits

Fremont County Environmental Health issues permits for new septic systems and repair permits for existing septic systems in all of the unincorporated portions of Fremont County, as well as Canon City, Florence and Brookside. If your property is located within the incorporated limits of Williamsburg, Rockvale, or Coal Creek, contact those jurisdictions for information about septic permits and related issues. In addition, Fremont County Environmental Health maintains files on septic systems, often with a sketch or drawing of the location of the septic system (septic tank and leachfield).

Fremont County Environmental Health also provides Consumer Protection services for Fremont County, including Retail Food Establishment (RFE) inspections, RFE plan review for new or extensively remodeled establishments, school inspections, child care center inspections, non-community ground water system inspections, and other duties such as responding to campground and mobile home park complaints, public accommodations complaints, public and semi-public pool & hot tub complaints.
