The Ocracoke Sanitary District, with the assistance from the North Carolina Rural Water Association, is in process of updating their Wellhead Protection Plan. This is a voluntary program intended to assist in protecting Ocracoke’s water supply from contamination and to identify vulnerable areas around their wells called “Wellhead Protections 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 District’s water supply.

A draft copy of the updated Wellhead Protection Plan is available for review and comment at the OSD Water Treatment Plant Office for the next 30 days. The public is invited to review the plan and submit any comments or suggestions to the Ocracoke Sanitary District.  All written comments will be reviewed by the Wellhead Protection Committee and any suggestions or comments that may be beneficial will be incorporated into the Plan.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact Janie Garrish or David Tolson at the OSD office at 252-928-5791.
