The On-Site Wastewater program permits and supervises the installation of septic systems where sewer lines are not available so that sewage may be safely disposed of with the least impact on individuals and the environment.

The Well program supervises the siting, installation and protection of private water supplies, and monitors the performance of well contractors in Catawba County.

The Environmental Health Specialists in the OSWT/Well program are assigned areas of the county in which they provide services for septic tank installation, private well siting and inspection, and complaint investigation.
