City’s Annual Water Line Flushing Begins May 9

City’s Annual Water Line Flushing Begins May 9

The City of Goldsboro Public Works Department will begin its annual free chlorine system May 8. The unidirectional water line flushing program will follow, beginning at 10 p.m. Sunday, May 9. Crews will flush lines from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily except, on Fridays and Saturdays. The flushing program should last approximately five weeks (through June 18, 2021) unless we experience inclement weather or extremely cold temperatures.

Residents may experience some discolored water during this process.  If residents experience discolored water, they should run their cold water for a short period to clear any discolored water that may be in their plumbing. If this does not resolve the problem, or if residents have any other questions or concerns, they should contact the Public Works Department at (919) 734-8674, during their normal business hours (7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 7 – 11 a.m. on Fridays).

The City of Goldsboro apologizes for any inconvenience you may experience while this important project is performed.
