Oxford County Public Health & Emergency Services enforces the provisions of Division B Part 8 of the Ontario Building Code 350/06.

A Performance Review & Change of Use Application is required under the Building Code for the review of proposals to increase living space, bedrooms, or fixtures in existing homes. Public health inspectors review applications to determine if the existing sewage system can adequately handle the expansion or if upgrading the system is required (called a performance level review).

A further discussion with an the area Health Inspector on the possible installation of a new septic system is required. Records of existing sewage systems may be on file and can be accessed for a search fee. When no record of the sewage system is available by the homeowner or through records, a site assessment of the septic system may be required. A fee is charged for this service.

Please contact Oxford County Public & Emergency Services for more information at 519-421-9901 or 1-800-922-0096.
