Due to COVID-19 staff reassignments and temporary business closures, the cost methodology for 2022 licenses was greatly reduced. Please keep in mind that fees for 2023 should return to pre-pandemic levels.

1. Household Sewage Treatment System
2. Food Service Operations
3. Private water
4. Pools and spas
5. Tattoo and Body Art Businesses
6. RV Parks
7. Health Release 


We accept payment via cash, checks, money order, or credit card.  There is a 2.35% transaction fee for credit card purchases ($1.95 minimum).  Identification matching credit card used is required.  We do not accept personal checks for birth or death certificates.

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 below 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!
