Columbus Public Utilities provides emergency phone number

Posted on: 09.13.2018 at 10:53 a.m.

From Columbus County Public Utilities:

The Columbus County Public Utilities Department will be providing water to their customers as well as other municipalities during Hurricane Florence.  However, we would like to remind everyone to be prepared prior to the storms arrival just in case any damages occur to the Public Water Supply System that is out of our control.  The system is run with wells and tanks and during power outages we rely on generators to keep the system running.  Although we will do our best to accommodate people during this massive storm, please keep in mind that the safety of our employees is our utmost concern.

If you have a water emergency, please call 910-770-2158 and staff will assess the situation when it is safe to do so and will make all necessary repairs as soon as possible.  Tinted water is possible due to changes in the direction of the flow of the system. The system is chlorinated and is not harmful by state standards; however, please make all necessary preparations prior to the arrival of Hurricane Florence.
