Temporary Change of Water Treatment Process 

From March 8, 2024 thru May 1, 2024, the Pamlico County Water Department will change its drinking water disinfectant from chloramines to chlorine. The purpose of this change, which occurs annually, is to help ensure a high level of disinfection in our community’s network of water mains.

In an effort to maintain compliance the disinfection by-product requirements of the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) the Pamlico County Water System utilizes chloramination at its water treatment facility. Chloramination is the controlled application of ammonia to the chlorination, does not react with naturally occurring organic material in the source water to form disinfection by-products currently regulated by the SDWA.

Water systems that utilize chloramination must periodically return to the free chlorine process. This change provides additional assurance that the proper disinfection of water in the system is maintained.

Most customers probably will not detect the difference; however, those with a keen sense of taste or smell may detect a slight chlorine odor in the water during this period. This would be due to the presence of residual chlorine rather than odorless residual chloramines.



System Pressure Advisory/Outage

The water consumers of Pamlico County Water System will experience periods of low pressure and outage on Thursday, January 25, 2024 from 0900-1600 in the distribution system due to a waterline and bridge upgrade. NCDOT contractors will be installing valves to the system. The following areas are covered under this advisory: 

Residents from 7431 Neuse Rd to 8780 Neuse Rd. This includes any other adjacent roads.

Periods of low or no pressure in the distribution system increases the potential for back siphonage and introduction of bacteria into the water system.

Therefore, the Pamlico County Water Department advises that when water is restored consumers boil all water used for human consumption (including drinking, cooking, brushing teeth, making ice and washing hands) or use bottled water.

Vigorous boiling for one (1) minute should kill any disease-causing organisms that may be present in the water.

This office is strongly urging the water consumers to conserve water whenever possible. This advisory remains in effect until sample results are returned (24-72 hours) and when further written notification is issued.

This advisory issued on 11/17/2023.
