 STAGE 1 – WATER CONSERVATION ALERT 

07.22.2019
 STAGE 1 – WATER CONSERVATION ALERT

Bolivia, NC – A Stage 1 Water Conservation Alert remains in effect.

All customers of a public water system anywhere in Brunswick County are affected by Water Conservation Alerts. Brunswick County Public Utilities provides water service in unincorporated portions of Brunswick County as well as the following communities: Boiling Spring Lakes, Bolivia, Calabash, Carolina Shores, Caswell Beach, Sandy Creek, St. James, Sunset Beach, and Varnamtown. Customers of other utilities such as Bald Head Island, Brunswick Regional – H2GO (Belville), Holden Beach, Leland, Navassa, Northwest, Oak Island, Ocean Isle Beach, Shallotte, and Southport are under the same restrictions since these utilities receive their water from Brunswick County Public Utilities.

Under a Stage 1 Water Alert, water system customers are requested to make voluntary adjustments to their water usage habits to appreciably reduce peak demands. (A peak demand of 80% of system production and distribution capacity being targeted). Irrigation demands represent the bulk of non-essential water use, so a primary way that customers may reduce water usage is to limit irrigation. A unified application of voluntary water reductions by all water system users in Brunswick County may help to avoid mandatory water restrictions in the event drought conditions do not lessen.

Specific ways to reduce water usage are as follows:

  1. Use the following recommended irrigation schedule to even out system demands:
  2. Odd address numbers – Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday
    b. Even address numbers – Wednesday/Friday/Sunday
    c. No irrigation on Mondays
  3. Defer all non-essential water use to outside the peak demand hours of 5:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m; preferably after nightfall.
    3. Don’t overwater your yard. One inch of water per week in the summer will keep most types of grass healthy. To determine how long you need to run your sprinkler to provide 1” of water, place straight edged cans at different distances from your sprinkler and time how long it takes to fill an average of 1” of water in each can. Water occasionally, but deeply to encourage deeper rooting that makes grass more drought/heat tolerant.
    4. Install rain shut-off devices on automatic sprinkler systems.
    5. Don’t water pavement and impervious surfaces.
    6. Limit lawn watering to that necessary for plant survival. Water lawns outside of the peak demand hours of 5:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m; preferably after nightfall.
    7. Water shrubbery the minimum required. Water shrubbery outside of the peak demand hours of 5:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Use drip irrigation systems in shrubbery beds and around trees to prevent water loss through evaporation.
    8. Use abundant mulch around trees and shrubs to retain moisture.
    9. Plant drought-tolerant grasses, trees, and plants.
    10. Adjust mower height to a higher setting to retain moisture.
    11. Limit the use of clothes washers and dishwashers and when used, operate fully loaded. Operate dishwashers outside of the peak demand hours of 5:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m; preferably after nightfall.
    12. Limit vehicle washing to a minimum. Use commercial car washes that recycle water.
    13. Use shower for bathing rather than bathtub and limit shower to no more than five (5) minutes.
    14. Inspect and repair all faulty and defective parts of faucets and toilets. Pay attention to dripping sounds.
    15. Do not leave faucets running while shaving, brushing teeth, rinsing or preparing food.
    16. Do not wash down outside areas such as sidewalks, driveways, patios, etc.
    17. Install water-saving showerheads and other water conservation devices.
    18. Install water-saving devices in toilets such as early closing flappers.
    19. Limit hours of water-cooled air conditioners.
    20. Keep drinking water in a container in the refrigerator instead of running water from a faucet until it is cool.
    21. Do not fill new (or empty) swimming or wading pools. Top off existing swimming pools from dusk until dawn.
    22. Cover pool and spas when not in use to prevent evaporation.
    23. Use disposable and biodegradable dishes where possible.

Please note that this Stage 1 Water Conservation Alert does not affect the use of private groundwater wells or those using highly treated reclaimed wastewater. (St. James, Winding River, Sea Trail, and Sandpiper Bay golf courses use reclaimed water. Other golf courses use wells and ponds for irrigation.) Also, this is not a water quality advisory; this is a water conservation advisory. There is no need to boil water for potable use unless you receive a Low Pressure Advisory notice for your specific area due to other conditions in the water distribution system.

Residents will be notified if any other conservation measures are needed and when conditions dictate that restrictions are no longer required. Residents who have questions should contact their water service provider directly or Brunswick County Public Utilities at 910-253-2657.

Tax Foreclosure Properties

The properties listed at the bottom of this page are scheduled for sale at the next Brunswick County Property Tax Foreclosure Auction due to unpaid property taxes.

Please make yourself familiar with all of the information below if you are interested in purchasing one of the properties listed:

  • Location – To bid you must attend the auction at the Courthouse. Each Tax Foreclosure Auction takes place on the steps of the Brunswick County Courthouse in Bolivia, NC, rain or shine.
  • Bidding Responsibility – Pursuant to state law, when bidding at a public sale, bidders become personally liable and responsible for their bids. The County does not guarantee or provide any warranty and will not overturn a sale and refund the purchase price or deposit because a bidder did not know what they were bidding on. It is the buyer’s responsibility to investigate the property prior to bidding. All sales are final.
  • Winning Bids/Deposit – All bidders must be prepared to pay a 10% deposit immediately upon the conclusion of the auction by cash, certified bank check, bank cashier’s check or money order. Personal checks will not be accepted. If the successful bidder fails to produce payment immediately upon the conclusion of the auction, the property shall be immediately re-auctioned. Brunswick County does not offer financing.
  • Failed Bids – If a bidder fails to follow through with their winning bid, the bidder will forfeit the deposit and the property will be resold. If the next bid is less than the original winning bid, a default judgment will be entered against the defaulting bidder for the loss. Defaulting bidders may be barred from making subsequent bids at any foreclosure sale conducted by Brunswick County.
  • Upset Bids – Following the auction, there is a standard ten (10) day period in which the property owner may pay all delinquent taxes to cancel the sale, or the bid may be upset by a higher bid. The minimum upset bid must exceed the sale price by 5%, but in any event the increase must be at least $750 over the sale price. Upset bids are paid to the Clerk of Court, Brunswick County Courthouse, prior to the ten (10) day deadline. Upset bids do not assure the sale of the property to the upset bidder. Upset bids will be accepted on a rolling basis and the property will be sold to the highest upset bidder.
  • Payment – Bids accepted at auction and upset during the ten (10) day period must be paid in full to the Clerk of Court, Brunswick County Courthouse within ten (10) days after the upset bid deadline.

The information posted here about any tax foreclosure sale property is for assistance only in this investigative process, and cannot and should not be relied upon solely by any bidder.

Current and Upcoming Sales

Note: All properties are sold in ‘as is’ condition. Interested parties are encouraged to research all properties thoroughly prior to sale and before bidding on a property.
