CLICK HERE TO GET AN INSPECTION REPORT

All inspections, including plumbing and septic, completed prior to March 2020 are available upon request.

Inspection reports may not be representative of the overall, long-term conditions within a facility. Inspection information provided shows only the conditions of the facility at the time of the inspection. It is a “snapshot” of the day and time that the inspection occurred. A single inspection report should not be used to evaluate the overall operation of an establishment.  Looking at a facility’s inspection results over a period of time gives a more accurate picture of that facility’s commitment to compliance.


PLUMBING AND SEPTIC 

All professionals performing sewage or plumbing work are required by the Ohio Revised Code/Administrative Code to be registered with the local health district where they are working.  Please see our Fees, Forms, and Applications page for a list of professionals registered with the Butler County Health District.

We advise the public to USE ONLY REGISTERED OR LICENSED PROFESSIONALS to do sewage or plumbing work. The public is advised NOT to use persons if they are not listed on our website. If you have a question about someone who may have registered after publication of this list, please call our office and ask about their registration status (513-863-1770). Persons performing plumbing or sewage work in Butler County while unregistered will be turned over to the Prosecutor's Office for further action.

If you know of persons performing work in Butler County who are not registered, please file a complaint with us in writing via the Contact Us page, by sending an email to BOH@butlercountyohio.org, or a letter by mail. 

Thank you for your assistance in keeping the people of Butler County healthy!
