Onsite Water Protection

The Onsite Water Protection (OSWP) Program is responsible for all site evaluations, permitting and inspection activities that require a septic tank system for onsite wastewater disposal. The OSWP program also helps private well users obtain safe drinking water by enforcing the North Carolina Private Drinking Well rules related to construction, repair, and abandonment of private water supply wells. Water testing and technical assistance is provided to owners and users of new and existing private drinking wells.
