Johnston County Lifts Water Shortage Advisory

Johnston County lifted the water shortage advisory this afternoon (Friday). The advisory had been issued Thursday morning due to a piping failure at the Johnston County Water Treatment Plant.

Officials remind Johnston County public water customers of the County’s year-round mandatory 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. Visit for the full policy and water conservation suggestions.
