This is an example of what it will look like when you have put in your address. Simply open up the file you wish to view by clicking on it. Underlined in red are the permit names. Septic information will often not be labeled (see the first search result). Otherwise, you want to look for the file name SEW. Well information would be under WEL. Previously filed time of sale inspections will often be filed with the main file or with the septic file, otherwise they will be named TOS.
