The City of Goldsboro Public Works Department will begin its annual unidirectional water line flushing program on Sunday, May 11 at 10 p.m.

Crews will be flushing lines from 10:00 p.m. until 6:00 a.m. daily, except on Fridays and Saturdays.

The flushing program is expected to last approximately six weeks unless the area experiences inclement weather or unusually 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 (7:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Monday thru Thursday and 7:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. on Fridays).
