Water Tank News in the Town


The water Tank is up and running well.  Make sure to report any problems with your meters to Margie Craver at the Town Hall.


 As of July 1, 2015 the base rate fee for the water system is $42.00.



Please be sure to call the Town Office when ready for inspections of water hook ups, and I will call the inspector. Permits may be purchased at the Town Hall Office.


Following Steps to Take to Hook up  

Plumbing Permit: purchase at the Town Hall - $75.00

Buried Pipe: Pipe buried 12 inches, must be inspected before covering up

Shut Off Valve: must have two shut off valves

Backflow Prevention Device: must be fitted with dual check valve backflow prevention device 

Cross Connection: private well must not be connected to public water supply

Therman Expansion Device: device installed in house to accommodate pressure in the system caused by heating water

Hooking up: may hook up before inspection but must be inspected quickly

Inspections: The Town has an appointed inspector for hook ups


This work can begin now if you are ready to start just remember you must come in and purchase a permit before starting if you are doing the work yourself. Please be sure to call the Town Hall when ready for your inspection,  910-283-7341 Moday - Friday, 8am til 3:00pm. You may hook up to the water system before the inspection is final, but just be sure to leave trench open until you have passed the inspection.



Thank you,

Margie Craver

Town Clerk
