Consider Water Supply and Wastewater Disposal
Information courtesy of: Michigan Environmental Health Association
Many parcels of land available for private residential homes are not served with a public sewer system or a public water system. Homes developed in these areas are served by a private septic tank--absorption field system or wastewater disposal and a private well water supply.
When contemplating the purchase of property to be used as a building site, seek the assistance of the Western Upper Peninsula District Health Department www.wupdhd.org or by calling 906.482.7382.
We can provide you with more details and assist in the evaluation process.
