Septic Program


The Environmental Services Department oversees the siting, design, installation, alteration, operation, maintenance, monitoring, and management of all septic systems within the County’s applicable jurisdiction.

Le Sueur County requires compliance inspections for the following:
  • For all zoning permits in shoreland zoning districts
  • For a zoning permit for the principle structure in all non-shoreland zoning districts
  • Prior to sale (the landowner is responsible party to provide this information)
  • At any time the Department deems appropriate, such as upon receiving a complaint or other information of system failure
