This Division is responsible for land development in Siskiyou County. We review, permit, and inspect individual sewage disposal systems, water wells, and water systems. See the accordion below for specific information on each program. We also review land use projects (subdivisions, lot splits, boundary line adjustments, use permits, and certificates of compliance) for density issues, on site sewage disposal capabilities, and water availability. Land development in Siskiyou County must be conducted in the following sequence:
1. Sewage disposal site review
2. Well site and permit issuance
3. Well installation
4. Demonstration of adequate quantity and quality if necessary
5. Issuance of sewage disposal permit
The Siskiyou County Municipal Code contains all the official responsibilities of the permit process. Permit applications and other information regarding water and individual sewage disposal systems can be found below in the Land Use Resource Center. Any questions regarding this division can be directed to the contact information on the right.
