The Sibley County Property Assessing & Zoning Department administers the Sub-Surface Sewage Treatment System (SSTS) program and all provisions set forth in Sibley County's Article 300 Zoning Ordinance.

Any time a property is sold or transferred, a 'Certification As To Septic System Status' form must be submitted along with the documents at time of recording.                              

The Sibley County SSTS Inspector services are contracted with Mid MN Septic Services and they are responsible for reviewing/approving all septic designs, overseeing all required septic installation inspections, and issuing the final Certificate of Compliance.
