On-Site Wastewater Program

The On-Site Wastewater Program is responsible for permitting and overseeing the installation of subsurface septic systems in the county.  This program enforces North Carolina’s laws and rules regarding sewage treatment and disposal. The mission of the On-Site Wastewater Program is to protect and promote the health of the community by ensuring that wastewater is properly disposed of in order to prevent the spread of disease and pollution.  This is done by performing soil/site evaluations for septic system placement on new lots or repairs, investigating complaints about failing systems, and troubleshooting failing or malfunctioning systems.
