Property Transfer Regulation

Parcels or properties for sale that rely on a well for drinking water and/or a septic system for sewage disposal are required by Macomb County regulation to have these systems evaluated prior to closing. System evaluations can be performed either by Macomb County Health Department staff or a private sector evaluator who is registered with the Macomb County Health Department.

Septic systems are evaluated for code compliance, performance and record availability. The well water supply system is inspected for code compliance, record availability as well as bacteriological water quality and partial chemical analysis. A report is provided to the applicant.
