Communicable Disease Control Program

Communicable disease is defined as "illness due to a specific infectious agent or its toxic products that arises through transmission of that agent or its products from an infected person, animal, or reservoir to a susceptible host, either directly or indirectly through an intermediate plant or animal host, vector, or the inanimate environment." Communicable disease pathogens include bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites and prions.

Communicable diseases can have a significant impact on the population. The surveillance and control of such diseases is an important part of protecting the public's health. The Communicable Disease program primarily deals with infectious diseases that are reportable by law.

The program also deals with other communicable diseases of public health significance, such as:

  • Influenza
  • Norovirus infection
  • Certain healthcare-associated infections.

For additional information please visit the NC Communicable Disease website.

The program responsibilities include:

  • Monitoring disease outbreaks
  • Monitoring reportable disease rates
  • Providing education to the public and medical community to prevent the spread of disease
  • Implementation of and enforcement of control measures to prevent the spread of infection.
  • Control and prevention of rabies and other diseases of animal origin that can affect humans.

Rabies is a vaccine preventable disease in humans, dogs, cats and ferrets as well as some domestic livestock. All mammals are susceptible to rabies and it is nearly always fatal. Rabies can be prevented in humans with timely and appropriate treatment. In North Carolina the disease most often occurs in wild animals especially skunks, raccoons, bats and foxes. Raccoon rabies is present in the raccoon population in virtually every North Carolina county. For additional information on Rabies please visit:

North Carolina Agricultural Cost Share Program

The North Carolina Agriculture Cost Share Program is a state-funded program administered to reduce the input of non-point source pollution into our streams, lakes and rivers. This reduction is achieved by providing cost share assistance to agricultural landowners and operators who use Best Management Practices (BMPs) to reduce pollutants (sediment, animal waste, pesticides, nutrients, etc.) leaving the land and entering the waters. Cost Share amounts are up to 75% of average cost to install BMPs.

Cost share monies for Union County have been used for such BMPs as waste storage structures, incinerators, fencing for livestock exclusion, watering facilities and heavy use area protection, as well as pasture renovations and well installation. Other cost shared BMPs include lagoon closures, dead poultry composters, stream bank stabilization, sod-based rotations, critical area plantings and many others. These practices must be installed to meet USDA - Natural Resources Conservation Service standards and specifications, along with proper maintenance of practice.

For more information contact our office at 704-233-1621 Extension #3 or visit the NC Department of Agriculture website.

About Soil & Water Conservation

Residents of Union and Anson Counties formed the nation’s first Soil & Water Conservation District on August 4th, 1937. The Brown Creek Soil & Water Conservation District covered the watershed land from central Anson County to south-east Union County North Carolina.

By 1947, the nation’s first Conservation District had grown to encompass 5 North Carolina Piedmont counties: Anson, Montgomery, Richmond, Stanly, and Union. Over time, each county would form its own entity.

Today there are nearly 3,000 Soil & Water Conservation Districts across all U.S. States and Territories. Although diverse, all Soil & Water Districts strive for the same goals: to protect our natural resources. Union SWCD makes great effort to provide technical, financial, and educational assistance to the residents of Union County to promote the proper management of our natural resources.
