While Buncombe County is no stranger to the beauty and splendor that are these mountains, you might wonder what we are doing to ensure they stay that way. We have several programs and departments whose focus is to monitor conditions both in the air and on the ground. Fresh water to drink and clean air to breath are only some of the concern addressed by our agencies.

Environmental standards and ordinances help make Buncombe County a safe place to live, work and play. We take pride in the fact that what we do has an impact both locally and globally. We encourage you to learn about our agencies and what you can do to help keep Buncombe County an environmentally sound place to be.
