Environmental Engineering

Environmental Engineering works with residents, businesses and the development community to protect natural resources and enhance communities while accommodating growth and development.


We are responsible for ensuring that the engineering, construction and maintenance of the county’s storm water sewer system and its treatment facilities meet certain standards for the protection of property and the environment, safety of our residents and improvement of stormwater runoff.

Call the 24-hour hotline at 804-717-6161 to report illegal dumping, spills or other illicit discharges. Please leave as much information as possible so that we can investigate your concern.
