See the latest information about vegetative debris collection on private roads in the unincorporated areas of the county due to Isaias >> https://www.brunswickcountync.gov/isaiasdebris

Residents on private roads in the unincorporated areas of Brunswick County need to place their vegetative debris from Hurricane Isaias in in the right-of-way of their property no later than the evening of Sunday, Aug. 30 for collection.

Click here for full details and instructions on this collection.

Crews will make one pass across the county and could arrive in any area as early as Monday. Any vegetative debris that is not on the right-of-way by Sunday evening will not be collected.

A right-of-way is generally defined as the edge of your property before the curb. If you have a sidewalk, ditch, or utility line in front of your house, make sure that your debris does not cover or restrict these areas.

This service will only include the private roads in the unincorporated areas of the county, including private roads in gated communities. The service will also collect any tree hangers or leaners in the rights-of-way.

This service will not collect or remove tree hangers or leaners that are on private property outside of a right-of-way.

Residents who need assistance to move debris or other needs following Hurricane Isaias can contact the Brunswick County VOAD for guidance and direction to organizations or services that may be able to help: 910-253-2589

Water Test Results

 

Water Test Results – Unregulated Compounds

In an effort to give our water customers and residents timely, transparent information about their water, Brunswick County is working with the Department of Environmental Quality and other utilities in the region to provide testing for both the raw source water in the Cape Fear River and the finished water within the distribution system of these utilities.

Brunswick County Public Utilities treats its source water above current state and federal standards and maintains a robust sampling and monitoring schedule. Additionally, we believe in the importance of participating in studies to ensure that emerging compounds are discovered and appropriately regulated to protect drinking water utilities and their customers. Additionally, Brunswick County supports and encourages efforts by the State of North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) to eliminate discharges of chemicals into the river that have possible detrimental impacts on drinking water source quality.

For more information on permitting and compliance enforcement, please contact the DEQ, which is the agency responsible for monitoring and regulating discharges on the river.

In addition to  testing for unregulated contaminates such as 1,4 Dioxane, Gen-x, and other PFAS, our staff also tests for a number of other contaminants as required by the EPA based on the agency’s testing schedule rules. Many of these tests are performed multiple times per day at the water treatment plants and throughout the water distribution system. View our annual water quality reports to learn more.
