Sewer Extension Permitting
Fast Track Sewer Extension Permitting
The Fast-Track Permitting program consists of the submittal of an application and an engineer's certification that the project meets all applicable State rules and Division Minimum Design Criteria. In return, the Division provides expedited processing without a full technical review. These projects consist of gravity sewers, pump stations and force mains or any combination of the two.
Projects that require an Environmental Assessment pursuant to 15A NCAC 01C .0408, alternative sewer systems (low pressure sewer, STEP systems, and vaccuum sewer), and projects funded through the Infrastructure Finance Section's financial assistance programs are not eligible for the Fast-Track Permitting Program. Please contact the Infrastructure Finance Section in regards to these types of projects.
Permitting by Regulation
Projects meeting the requirements of 15A NCAC 02T .0303 are deemed permitted in accordance with 2T Subchapter .0113 and and therefore it may not be necessary for the Division to issue individual permits for coverage.
Adjusted Daily Sewage Flow Design Rate (Flow Reduction)
An adjusted daily sewage flow design rate (design flow reduction) maybe requested for certain situations. Note that if the flow reduction request is granted, it is applied to permitted but not yet tributary connections and future connections tributary to the system. The request must show that the sewage system is adequate to meet actual daily wastewater flows from a facility without causing violations at the receiving wastewater treatment plant or capacity related sanitary sewer overflows within the collection system. Requests should be submitted to the PERCS unit and should meet all requirements of 15A NCAC 02T.0114(f).
