Title V


The Shrewsbury Health Department has developed a Title V repository in an effort to house pumping records, septic plans, Title V inspection reports, septic repairs, abandonments, etc. into one centralized location broken down by street address. 

If you cannot locate what you are looking for, please contact the Health Department and we'll be happy to look in the physical files for you to see if that information is on file. Please call 508-841-8384 or send an email to: shrewsburyhealthagent@shrewsburyma.gov
