4. Permit: Every person intending to build a building referred to in section 2 or to develop a site referred to in that section must, before starting the work required for that purpose, obtain a permit from the local municipality having jurisdiction over the territory concerned by such a construction or development.
Such a permit is also required prior to
(a)  the construction of an additional bedroom in an isolated dwelling or the change of its use;
(b)  the increase of the operating or utilization capacity of a building or site other than an isolated dwelling referred to in section 2 or the change of its use;
(c)  the construction, renovation, modification, reconstruction, moving or enlargement of a system for the discharge, collection or disposal of waste water, grey water or toilet effluents serving a building or site referred to in section 2;
(d)  the construction of a privy serving a building or site referred to in section 2; and
(e)  the installation of a compost toilet serving a building or site referred to in section 2.
Such a permit is not required for the reconstruction of a building referred to in section 2 or the redevelopment of a site referred to in that section after a fire or other disaster, to the extent provided for in the fourth paragraph of section 3.
The regional county municipality shall issue the permits prescribed in this section in unorganized territories.
Where the municipality processes a permit application for the construction of an additional bedroom in an isolated dwelling, the change of use of a building or the increase of the operating or utilization capacity of another building or site referred to in section 2, the municipality re-evaluates the standards applicable to the system for the discharge, collection or disposal of waste water, grey water and toilet effluents under this Regulation or, as the case may be, informs the applicant that his or her project is subject to section 32 of the Act.
The municipality must issue a permit under this section, where the project provides for the building or site referred to in section 2 to be equipped with a system for the discharge, collection and disposal of waste water, toilet effluents or grey water in conformity with this Regulation.
The permit must also be issued to the extent that the applicant demonstrates that the parts of the system not covered by the reconstruction, renovation, modification or moving comply with the following conditions:
(a)  they are designed to receive waste water, grey water or toilet effluents of the building or site based, as the case may be, on the number of bedrooms or the maximum operating or utilization capacity;
(b)  they show no sign of alteration likely to compromise its expected watertightness or performance;
(c)  they do not constitute a nuisance, a source of contamination of well water or spring water used for drinking water supply or a source of contamination of surface water.
This section does not apply to a municipality that has made a by-law providing for the issue of a municipal construction permit for a building or site referred to in section 2 or a system for the discharge, collection or disposal of waste water, toilet effluents or grey water under general or special legislation which grants it regulatory powers for that purpose. In that case, the municipality issues its municipal construction permit in conformity with section 86 of the Act.
