The Door County Sanitarian’s Department was created in the mid-1960’s by the Door County Board of Supervisors. This came about due to the concern over failing private sewage disposal systems within the county. In addition, there was a concern over the water supplies serving the many residences within the County and their possible contamination from untreated human waste.

In 1967, the Door County Sanitary Ordinance was enacted. This ordinance required sanitary permits for all private waste disposal systems constructed within Door County. Forms were then created and distributed to all septic system installers in Door County and since that time, permits have been required prior to the installation of all private sewage disposal systems.

The Sanitarian’s Department has and continues to deal with the private sewage program in Door County. It has also been involved with other environmental health problems associated with the County.
