Public Notice

Moore County Public Utilities – Pinehurst System
Local Wellhead Protection Program Plan Notice

Moore County Public Utilities, with assistance from the North Carolina Rural Water Association, is in the process of developing a Local Wellhead Protection Program Plan for MCPU – Pinehurst system.  This is a voluntary program intended to assist us in protecting the system’s water supply from contamination, and to identify vulnerable areas around our wells called the “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 system’s drinking water supply.

MCPU is asking for your assistance in developing this program.  A draft copy of the Wellhead Protection Plan will be available for review and comment at the Moore County Public Utilities office located at 5227 US Hwy 15-501, Carthage or click here to read now. You are invited to review the program and submit any comments or suggestions to Moore County Public Utilities.  All written public comments will be reviewed by the Wellhead Protection Committee, and any suggestions or comments that may be beneficial will be incorporated into the program.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact Mr. Randy Gould, Public Works Director, at (910) 947-6315.
