Search for Records

Welcome to the Buncombe County Septic, Well, and Well Water Testing Portal.  Please use the form below to search Buncombe County's permitting database. Please note that the Well Program began January 1, 2005. Well Permits were not issued prior to that. Septic Permits were not required until January 1977.  If the structure is old, it may be difficult to locate the permit, and information contained on the permit may be limited.  You may get a rough idea of the tank location by looking under the house to see where the building’s sewer is located.  The actual disposal field may sometimes be evidenced by greener grass growth.  You may also contact a private home inspector, installer, wastewater system operator or wastewater contractor.  There is a document under the List of Available Reports link above named Search Techniques for Well and Septic Records.  That document provides best practices and tips for searching well and septic records.  If you cannot find a record of your septic system, you may fill out the linked PDF request form below and submit it to the Environmental Health Office by email at ehrequest@buncombecounty.org or by fax at 828-250-6161.
