The NC Pumper Group is a trade group for septage management firms, septic tank pumpers, land application site operators, grease septage disposal operations, and related industries doing business in North Carolina.
Septic tank businesses, great and small, have joined together to protect their mutual interests in North Carolina.
The NC Pumper Group was formed in 2001 to create a trade organization tailored to provide strong and consistent advocacy for septage management firms and all the related business activities that have developed from the relatively simple septic tank installation and pumping industry of the early twentieth century.
The 21st century has brought massive changes in technology, revisions in regulations, and pressures on business profits. North Carolina is changing as our population increases dramatically, while the infrastructure to handle the waste stream of this population lags behind.
The NC Pumper Group protects the regulatory, legal and business interests of septage management firms as tensions mount among the various segments of regulators, municipalities, and private industry.
Members receive email alerts regarding legislative, legal and regulatory issues.
Lobbyists Joe McClees and his wife, attorney Henri McClees, maintain a constant presence in the NC General Assembly when the legislature is in session. They provide news updates to members regarding proposed regulatory and tax changes and other relevant issues that could impact the septage management industry.
The NC Pumper Group conducts annual Educational Seminars at convenient locations across North Carolina. These seminars provide updates on laws and rules, developments in technologies, software, marketing, and warnings of enforcement problems and actual conflicts with NC regulators. Members receive free admission to the seminars and receive additional members-only benefits, including confidential legal conferences with attorney Henri McClees regarding relevant business issues.
