Water & Sewer Planning

The Division of Planning and Permitting is responsible for the coordination of long-term water and sewer planning with the county's comprehensive planning process. The County Comprehensive Plan identifies community growth area boundaries, which are used as the basis for delineating public water and sewer service areas. The comprehensive plan also provides guidance for the timing of development relative to the availability of water and sewer service. 

The Planning and Permitting Division administers updates and amendments to the County Water and Sewerage Plan and coordinates inter-agency review with the Division of Utilities and Solid Waste Management, the Health Department, and the County Attorney's Office.
