Deschutes County Department of Community Development
We’ll work with this department to develop a Land Use Application, which states that we want to run a business on a residential piece of property in an Exclusive Farm Use Zone.
Environmental Health Specialist – Department of Environmental Quality
DEQ will help us craft and then approve a wastewater capture and treatment plan.
Environmental Health Supervisor – Department of Community Development
After having a professional advise us on where to install a leach line and septic tank, they will dig test pits on the property. We will then pay for a site evaluation, and someone from this department will come inspect the soil make-up and depth of the pits.
Oregon Department of Agriculture – Food Safety Division
This department advises from a bird’s eye view up until we have the Land Use Application being processed, and wastewater treatment, septic system, and brewhouse layout planned. At that point, they will come out for a site visit.
