City to Begin Water Line Flushing May 10

The City of Goldsboro Public Works Department will begin its annual free chlorine system beginning May 8, 2020. The unidirectional water line flushing program will follow beginning 10 p.m. Sunday May 10. Crews will be flushing lines from 10 p.m. until 6 a.m. daily except Fridays and Saturdays. The flushing program should last approximately five weeks (through June 19) unless we experience inclement weather or extremely cold temperatures.

Residents may experience some discolored water during this process. If discolored water is experienced, residents should run their cold water for a short period to clear any discolored water that may be in their plumbing. If this does not resolve the problem, or if residents have any other questions or concerns, they should contact the Public Works Department at (919) 734-8674, during their normal business hours (7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 7-11 a.m. on Fridays).

We apologize for any inconvenience you may experience as we perform this important project.
