Johnston County Lifts Water Shortage Advisory

Johnston County has lifted the water shortage advisory. The announcement was made Tuesday afternoon. However, all public water customers are reminded of the County’s mandatory year-round conservation policy.

The policy allows for alternate day irrigation for irrigation systems and hose-end sprinklers based on the customer’s address. Odd number street addresses are allowed to water on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, while even number street addresses are allowed to water on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. No irrigation is allowed on Mondays. Pool filling days should correspond with allowed irrigation days.

Citizens with questions can contact Johnston County Public Utilities at 919-989-5075.


  1. I watered my grass anyway. When the county stops giving building permits that makes usage more then they can handle then I would co-operate but right now, POO on JC water.
