What do I need to obtain a pool permit with Rutherford County?

In order to verify that your swimming pool will not encroach your septic tanks, lines or designated duplicate area, you will need to provide a copy of the design layout of your Subsurface Sewage Disposal System (septic system).  If you do not have a copy of this form, please visit the Tennessee Department of Environmental and Conservation office (Room 215 of our office building).   A Zoning Compliance Form will also need to be obtained from the Rutherford County Planning and Engineering Department (Room 200 of our office building) prior to permit issuance.  You will be asked to locate the proposed location of the swimming pool on grid paper, this drawing does not have to be to scale but the dimensions, etc. must be accurate. Please click here for a diagram form and here for an example of how to fill it out.  The building inspector will use all of the above mentioned paperwork to complete your Final Pool Inspection, in order to avoid unnecessary delays in permit issuance or completing the inspection, it is advised that you take the time to take measurements and know the exact location of your pool prior to coming to our office to obtain your permit.
