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: Fuquay-Varina, Garner, Knightdale, Morrisville, Rolesville, Wendell and Zebulon.
For Wake County subdivisions, builders are required to obtain grading permits for cumulative disturbances over one acre (including non-contiguous lots).
All single-home construction sites in Wake County's jurisdiction are required to have adequate erosion control installed prior to the footing inspection.
