Flushing will occur in three phases with one phase being flushed each week. Phase 1 includes areas east of Highway 32 and north of Highway 17, Phase 2 includes areas west of Highway 32 and north of Highway 17 and Phase 3 which is all areas south of Highway 17. This will NOT impact the Town of Edenton Water customers. On Sunday March 17h they will begin Phase Two and on Sunday March 24th  they will move into Phase Three. All flushing will be completed by March 29th.

If you experience discoloration or loss of pressure, we recommend flushing the service line for 5 to 10 minutes from the meter to your house by opening an outside spigot. This should help protect against discoloration or particles from getting into washing machines, dishwashers, kitchen, and bath faucets. We apologize for the inconvenience. The flushing schedule along with a map can be found on the home page of the Chowan County Website.
