COVID-19 Customer Assistance and Payment Plans

Most provisions of Executive Order 142 (EO 142), an amended extension of Executive Order 124 (EO 124), expired July 29, 2020. As such, we will resume our normal disconnection policies after that date. Customers will, however, have until at least January 25, 2021, to pay off any arrearages accumulated from March 26, 2020 through July 29, 2020. All applicable customers will automatically receive six (6) equal monthly payment plan installments on their next six (6) monthly bills for any unpaid charges which had a due date of March 26, 2020 through July 29, 2020 along with their current usage charges. Customers who wish to have their COVID19 payment plan amended or are unable to meet the minimum payment requirement, please contact customer service at 252-537-9137 prior to your due date.

In the water . . . but out of harm's way

In the water . . . but out of harm's way

August 01, 2020

Swimming pools and beach vacations, waterskiing at the lake and rafting on the river, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, boating, wake boarding, tubing, jet skiing, snorkeling, sailing, surfing, and swimming - when it's summertime and the mercury is on the rise, there is nowhere we'd rather be than in the water! North America’s lakes, rivers, and seas are oases of beauty and respite from the summer sun, so it’s no surprise that swimming is summer’s number one pastime.
