Phase V Water Lines - December 5, 2018

Water line construction is underway in the Lake Road Area.  The $300 pretap fee will end soon.  If you have not paid the fee and completed a membership application, you should contact our office immediately before the fee increases to $750.  Once the water line passes your property, the tap fee increases to $2,400.

Questions about the construction and fees should be directed to the office at (252) 393-1515.



October 30, 2018: Your water company is finally very pleased to announce that a contract to complete the water line installation has been signed.  The contract has been awarded to Sunland Development in Newport.  Sunland has been frequently involved with WCWC projects and we have a high sense of confidence in their work ethic and ability to complete this project in the manner that is expected.

Their Notice to Proceed was issued effective November 1, 2018.  They will have a period of time that will be needed to mobilize and basically "pick-up" where the previous contractor abandoned the project on Lake Road, Nine Foot Road, and Roberts Road.  Once they are underway, they will then give us a predicted schedule about one month in advance of where they plan to be working.  It is anticipated that they will finish the area as just mentioned before moving onto Hwy 24, eastward towards subdivisions along that corridor and Hibbs Road.

With the change in contractor, there is a needed change in our tap fee process.  In previous projects, the $300 tap fee expired when the contractor began working.  We have not done that in Phase V, but we are needing to finalize our tap locations. Therefore, please note that the tap-on fee will increase from $300 to $750 for Lake Road, Nine Foot Road, and Roberts Road on December 15, 2018. It will then increase to $2,400 once the water line is finished and released for hook-up. Next, George Taylor Road and Bluewater Banks should make plans to do the same.  The deadline in those areas will be shortly thereafter.

If you wish to get a tap, please do so immediately.  Call our office at (252) 393-1515 or email  You DO NOT need to remit the full payment.  You can pay $50 per month or make whatever payment arrangement works best for you financially, but do not miss this opportunity.

If you have already purchased a pre-tap and have not indicated where you wish for your meter to be placed, mainly in the Nine Foot, Lake Road, and Roberts Road areas, contact us immediately as well.

Thank you again for your patience and we will update this page as information becomes available to us.

Hurricane Preparation

September 10, 2018

As Florence progresses, please take precautions. It would be better to over plan than to have no plan. (We have provided helpful information as provided by NCWaterWARN.) In the event that Florence makes landfall north, south, or directly into Carteret County, this storm is concerning for us and our neighboring counties.
