OneStop Data and Information
Subsurface e-Permitting

NHDES is proud to announce the Subsurface e-Permitting system. This web-based permitting program allows permitted designers and installers to prepare, pay for and submit individual sewage disposal system (ISDS) standard and repair-and-replacement applications entirely online. Surveyors can prepare, pay for and submit electronic subdivision applications. Installers can also request inspections electronically. Communications between NHDES and the designers, surveyors and installers are done via email and there is an option to have all correspondence to owners and other related parties emailed as well.
