On-Site Wastewater

Properties with functioning on-site septic systems are not required to connect to the sanitary sewer system. However, all households with septic systems that have public sewers available (within 100’ of the property line) are subject to an On-Site Wastewater Excise Tax. 

The 2021 On-Site Wastewater Excise Tax is $38.04 per bi-monthly billing period ($19.02 per month). The tax is set by the Lake Forest Park City Council and may change annually.
