Beginning in 2018 the NC General Assembly passed Session Law 2018-114 (HB 374) . Section 11.(c) "allows soil scientists to submit documentation of their evaluation of soil conditions and site features to produce design and construction features for a new wastewater system or for repair of an existing system. The soil scientist's evaluation may be submitted with a completed application to the local health department. Provided the soil scientist adheres to the requirements in the NC DHHS position statement a permit can be issued by the LHD without verification of the soil descriptions. In the case of a LHD experiencing a backlog of new applications the session law alternative can be accelerate the permitting process. A copy of the NC DHHS position statement is attached for reference.
