Brunswick County, with assistance from the North Carolina Rural Water Association, is in the process of developing a Wellhead Protection Plan. This is a voluntary program intended to assist in protecting the County’s water supply from contamination and to identify vulnerable areas around their wells called “Wellhead Protection Areas.” Another goal of this program is to make residents and businesses aware that chemicals and other pollutants spilled or dumped in the vicinity of the “Wellhead Protection Areas” can be drawn into the wells, possibly contaminating the County’s drinking water supply.
A draft copy of the Wellhead Protection Plan is available for review and comment at the Public Utilities Operations Center located at 250 Grey Water Road, Supply, NC. The public is invited to review the plan and submit any comments or suggestions to Brunswick County. All written comments will be reviewed by the Wellhead Protection Committee and any suggestions or comments that may be beneficial will be incorporated into the plan. All comments must be received by close of business March 15, 2013.
If you have any questions or comments, please contact Brunswick County’s Water Resources Superintendent Jeremy Sexton at 910-454-0512.
