State of Utah Department of Environmental Quality Certification 

In 2001 the Utah Legislature passed a bill establishing a requirement that persons who design, inspect, or maintain underground wastewater disposal systems (also referred to as septic or on-site wastewater treatment systems), and/or conduct percolation tests or soil evaluations for these systems, must be certified by the State of Utah.

Certification requires completion of training and examination by the Utah On-Site Wastewater Treatment Training Program through Utah State University, followed by application to the Division of Water Quality.
