About the Plumbing Program
Plumbing is an important part of the sanitary waste disposal system in any building. Plumbing that is installed improperly can result in back-ups, leaks, environmental pollution, explosion, and other hazards. To protect the health and safety of the residents of Licking County, a plumbing permit is required for all new residential, and commercial, plumbing installed.
Plumbers must be registered with the Health Department before conducting business in the county.
For information about plumbing permits, to check the registration status of a plumber, to schedule an inspection, or to get other information about our plumbing program contact our inspectors between 8:00 and 10:00 a.m. at (740) 349-6475. Our fax number is (740) 349-6935. Inspection requests may also be left on the voicemail after hours.
