Health Section

Health Plan Review, employee working on split monitor to review plans


The Health Section conducts the majority of health plan reviews submitted to DPIE’s Building Plan Review Division. The projects this section reviews include plans for new and remodeled facilities including food service facilities, on-site sewage disposal systems, and wells for potable water supplies. The Section also conducts plan reviews for the upgrade/expansion of an existing sewage disposal system to serve proposed building additions.

Additionally, this section conducts pre-opening inspections of food service facilities; also, this section makes installation inspections of on-site sewage disposal systems and wells that have plans approved within the Building Plan Review Division. This section’s functions are jointly coordinated between the Division of Environmental Health in the Health Department and the Department of Permitting, Inspections and Enforcement.


ePlan Submissions

Electronic plan (ePlan) submission is available through the ePermits Online Portal for health cases that don't require a DPIE building permit (equipment evaluations, onsite sewage disposal systems on residential properties, facilities located in the City of Laurel, the University of Maryland, and Bowie State University).

Note:  The Health Department does not review or license food establishments in Federal buildings or on Federal property.
