Wake County operates an erosion prevention program that aims to prevent sediment from leaving a construction site and contaminating Wake County's natural environment. We accomplish this by enforcing state and local erosion prevention regulations and by working with developers, builders and landowners in Wake County.
 
Wake County manages erosion control for all unincorporated areas of the County and the following municipalities: Garner, Knightdale, Morrisville, Rolesville, Wendell and Zebulon. Fuquay-Varina established its own erosion control program effective September 18, 2018.

On Oct. 21, 2019, the Wake County Board of Commissioners granted the Town of Fuquay-Varina’s request to extend its Extraterritorial Jurisdiction. The areas granted are depicted on this map. These areas will remain in Wake County’s jurisdiction until such time the town applies its zoning, which is expected to occur in the next few months. Should you have any questions, please contact our office at 919-856-7400.
 
CHANGES TO PROGRAM EFFECTIVE APRIL 1, 2019
The NCG01 Permit will no longer be issued concurrently with the County's Land Disturbance Permit. Once you have received approval from the County for your land disturbance, you will submit online to NC DEQ for NCG01 coverage. Then you will provide proof of coverage back to Wake County prior to permit issuance.
 
Wake County has been working with the State to create standard permit language and details to ensure our permits are consistent with the NCG01.
 
PER THE STATE – NC DEQ: ALL BUILDERS AND DEVELOPERS DISTURBING LAND  IN A SUBDIVISION (COMMON PLAN OF DEVELOPMENT) ARE REQUIRED TO HAVE A LAND DISTURBANCE PERMIT EVEN IF THE DISTURBANCE IS LESS THAN 1 ACRE.
