Larimer County Department of Health & Environment (LCDHE) Director Tom Gonzales and the Larimer County Assessor Bob Overbeck have collaborated to make on-site wastewater treatment system (OWTS) or “septic system” permit data available through the Assessor's Office online property records database.

OWTS records are used by homeowners trying to locate their system for routine maintenance or in planning for remodels or additions to their property. They are also used by real estate professionals providing information to prospective buyers, and by industry professionals when the location of a system is unknown.

There are about 15,000 Larimer County OWTS permits, treating nearly 4.5 million gallons of wastewater a day, on record that date back to the late 1950s. In the past, residents researching permits in Larimer County had to contact LCDHE directly to access those records. Now, that information is a click away via a link that is included with each property record in the Larimer County Assessor’s Office online database. While viewing property records, residents can navigate to OWTS data by clicking the “Building Information” tab at the top of each property record page.

“We’re excited about this partnership to make OWTS records available through the Larimer County Assessor's Office database,” says Larimer County Public Health Director Tom Gonzales. “This has provided an increased level of transparency and provides the public with quicker and easier access to those records.”

Thousands of residents visit the assessor’s website each month to view property information and real estate transactions. The property records search page hosted by the assessor's office is already a valuable web-based tool used by many of the same people who need access to OWTS permits, so having these available in the same place is convenient and has eliminated having two areas to search for these records.

"I'm glad to collaborate with Public Health Director Tom Gonzales and his team to host the LCDHE septic data on our website," said Larimer County Assessor Bob Overbeck. "It allows homeowners and others in the community an easier way to do important research and locate septic permit information."

While septic system data is also kept with LCDHE, the link now makes it easier for residents to quickly view the information online, instead of visiting in person, emailing, or calling to acquire the information.
