Utility Projects Completed from 2010 -2019
The Town of Beech Mountain provides water throughout the Town and sewer service to the majority of building sites. Where sewer is not available, a sanitary septic system would be required, for which a permit is required from the Appalachian District Health Department, Route 5, Box 199, Boone, NC 28607, 828/264-4995. The Town Water and Sewer Use Ordinance requires the use of Town water and/or sewer if it is available to the property within 200 feet. More information concerning utilities can be found in the Town Ordinance Chapter 51: Water and Sewer Use.
