To be able to haul residential or commercial septage (wastewater), a hauler must have their vehicles licensed and inspected on an annual basis. The State of Michigan, Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy (EGLE), handles the permitting of septage hauling. Monroe County Health Department Environmental Health Division performs the annual inspections. EGLE provides a septage haulers directory. You can also visit the EGLE Septage page for additional information, rules and related information.
