After approval, water and sewer lines need to be designed by a Professional Engineer to City of Roxboro Standards. Plans and specification are submitted to the Engineer Department for City approval prior to submission to the State for State approval. For additional information, please contact the Public Services Department at 336-503-0489.
During the construction process, soil is highly vulnerable to erosion by wind and water. Eroded soil endangers water resources by reducing water quality and causing the silt of aquatic habitat for fish and other desirable species. Eroded soil also necessitates repair of sewers and ditches and the dredging of lakes. In addition, clearing and grading during construction cause the loss of native vegetation necessary for terrestrial and aquatic habitat.
