San Juan Basin Health is currently in the process of providing all On-site Wastewater Treatment System (OWTS) permits online. During the transition, permits will not be available on a same- or next-day basis. Requests can still be made and will be filled in the order they were received as soon as they are available. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.

In order to better meet the needs of our community, as of December 19th 2016 assistance will be provided by same- or next-day appointments with an Environmental Health Specialist who has expertise in the suitable field. Walk-in appointments will be available for a limited time on Wednesdays and Fridays. For questions or schedule an appointment please send on email to or call 970-335-2052.
