Draft Wellhead Protection Plan Available for Inspection

The City of Havelock, with assistance from the North Carolina Rural Water Association, is in the process of updating their Wellhead Protection Plan. This is a voluntary program intended to assist in protecting the City’s water supply from contamination, and to identify vulnerable areas around their wells called "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 community’s drinking water supply. The Draft City of Havelock Wellhead Protection Plan is available for public inspection at City Hall, 1 Governmental Avenue, Havelock, NC. Any interested person may submit written comments on this plan to: 


City of Havelock

Attn: Rick Day, Public Utilities Director

All written comments must be submitted within 30 days of this notice. Comments will be reviewed by the Wellhead Protection Committee, and any suggestions or comments that may be beneficial will be incorporated into the plan. For questions regarding this plan, please contact the City of Havelock at 252-444-6420.

The Havelock Board of Commissioners will consider formal approval of this plan at their scheduled June 27, 2022 regular board meeting. This institution is an equal opportunity provider and employer.
