Hurricane Season is Here

Hurricane season has made its appearance once again. West Carteret Water Corporation would like to extend a reminder to all of our members to stay prepared!

If at any time during a hurricane or tropical storm you decide to evacuate, please make sure to cut the water off using your personal shut off valve located next to your water meter box. If you cannot do so, call our office at (252)393-1515 or send an email to water@wcwc.biz and WCWC will be more than glad to cut it off for you. There is no cost for this service.

Do not leave water on at docks, outdoor showers, irrigation systems, or outbuildings! Historically, leaks in these types of plumbing have been the source of high usage following damaging winds and/or downed trees. (We do not offer an adjustment for high usage due to inclement weather where it could have been prevented by cutting off the supply in advance. More importantly, leaks contribute to
depleting the elevated tanks.)

WCWC staff will be keeping a very close eye on the weather in the upcoming months. Please remember to report any outages to assist us in locating and isolating main breaks and substantial leaks. Should you have any questions or concerns, please call the office at (252)393-1515. Thank you!
