Process for applying for a New or Repair of Existing Private Wastewater System Permit

  1. Use the City of De Soto's permit portal link found here to apply for the permit to install a new private wastewater system or repair an existing system.
  2. Ensure that as much information about the property and system to be installed is included in the application to ensure processing of the permit can be completed.
  3. Upload required site plan as well as design documents for the work to be completed. Without required document uploads your application will not be accepted or processed.
  4. Once permit has been processed by De Soto Building & Codes Staff, a copy of the permit with a link to pay permit fees will be sent to you. If you wish to pay fees with a check or cash, please let the building staff know and a copy of your permit will be available for payment by those methods at the front counter of City Hall. Electronic payment via the link provided in the email or through the portal will immediately cause permit to become active for construction.
  5. Once payment has been received, the permit is considered active for construction. Building permit letter can be downloaded through the permit portal found here and should be posted on site during construction.
