The City of Goldsboro Public Works Department will begin its annual switch to a free chlorine system May 4. The unidirectional water line flushing program will follow, beginning at 10 p.m. Sunday, May 8. Crews will flush lines from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily except Fridays and Saturdays. The flushing program should last approximately five weeks (through June 12, 2022) 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 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 regular business hours (7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 7 – 11 a.m. on Fridays).
