Any new construction or renovation that involves people will need to get signed off on by Outer Banks Environmental Services. These are the people that deal with your septic and drainage. If you are expanding your home, adding a bathroom, etc. these folks make those decisions. The good news is that on the Outer Banks, the counties have total jurisdiction, so it’s far less confusing who to call. Each county will determine whether your property or existing system can support the amount of people anticipated to use the property generally referred to as the occupancy level.
The down side is that Outer Banks Environmental Services are very busy, as they handle their entire respective counties. Note: Only request information from them if your property is already under contract. Start your information search with your building permit.Contact Information for Environmental Services
