SYSTEM PRESSURE / BOIL WATER ADVISORY RESCINDED; STAGE 3 MANDATORY WATER RESTRICTIONS REMAIN IN EFFECT

Pender County Utilities has rescinded the May 26, 2019 System Pressure Advisory issued to its water customers in all areas of Hampstead, Scott’s Hill, and south of 7390 NC 210 in Rocky Point.  System pressures have risen to higher levels that are closer to normal.

Bacteriological analysis results of drinking water samples collected after the pressure loss from this water system show no coliform bacteria present.  Pender County Utilities water customers may use the water without boiling.

The Stage 3 Mandatory Water Restrictions II remain in effect at this time.  All non-essential uses of drinking water are banned and garden and landscape irrigation must be reduced to the minimum amount necessary for survival.

Thank you.

This advisory is hereby rescinded the 29th day of May 2019:

Kenny Keel, Director      Pender County Utilities     910-259-1570

On weekends and Holidays

“ If residents have not received their new decals in the mail, they can pick them up at the Hampstead transfer station as long as they bring their tax bill showing the proper code for proof of payment,” said Kenny Keel, Pender County Utilities director. “Without a tax bill showing proof of payment our personnel can’t issue an updated decal over the holiday period. During normal office hours, residents can also receive new decals at the utilities offices in Burgaw.” Residents will need to have their updated solid waste decals displayed.

Pender County offices closed, transfer station remains opened

BURGAW – Pender County offices will be closed Friday, April 19, and Monday, April 23 in observance of the Easter holiday.

However, Pender County Utilities (PCU) will keep the Hampstead transfer station open Friday, Saturday, and Monday. The transfer station will close on Easter Sunday.

All convenience sites in Pender County will remain open on their regular schedule during Easter weekend.

“Residents will need to have their updated solid waste decals displayed. If residents have not received their new decals in the mail, they can pick them up at the Hampstead transfer station as long as they bring their tax bill showing the proper code for proof of payment,” said Kenny Keel, Pender County Utilities director. “Without a tax bill showing proof of payment our personnel can’t issue an updated decal over the holiday period.  During normal office hours, residents can also receive new decals at the utilities offices in Burgaw.”

Solid Waste Decal Purchase Procedures for County Residents in Incorporated Areas

Pender County residents in incorporated areas do not receive Pender County Solid Waste decals, due to receiving (and paying for) solid waste services from their municipality.  These residents are not charged a solid waste availability fee by Pender County.

However, if residents in incorporated areas desire to utilize Pender County Solid Waste Convenience Center sites, they can pay the appropriate availability fee for the Full or Recycle-only decals to gain access.  The fee charged for decals is for the complete period of service remaining for the decal.  In other words, if purchased in April 2019 (when the new 2-year decal was issued), an incorporated area resident would pay for 2 years of service ($440 for Full Use, $220 for Recycle-only).  This fee will be pro-rated if purchased later during the decal’s stated term.  All sales are final, and no refunds will be issued.

If county decals are purchased, any solid waste fees paid to a municipality will NOT be affected.  You will NOT receive a refund of your town’s fees and will still have to pay your town’s fees in the future.

Christmas tree disposal available

BURGAW –  The Pender County residents may dispose of their Christmas trees at the Rocky Point and Hampstead Convenience Centers for 3 weeks following Christmas.

“We will accept Christmas trees through Jan. 15,” said Kenny Keel, Pender County Public Utilities director.

Christmas lights and ornaments should be removed from the trees prior to disposal.

The Rocky Point Convenience Center is located at 16232 NC Hwy 210. The center is open Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. Closed Sundays and Wednesdays.

The Hampstead Convenience Center is open Mondays through Saturdays 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. and Sundays 1 – 7 p.m. The Hampstead center is located at 250 Transfer Station Rd.

Christmas trees left in storm-related debris piles will not be accepted by the contractor.

Solid Waste stickers coming in March

BURGAW –  Solid waste stickers for 2019– 2020 will be mailed to residents within the unincorporated areas of Pender County in mid-March.

“The current stickers will be honored at all the convenience sites through March 31,” said Kenny Keel, Pender County Utilities director.  “All new stickers should be distributed by March 31.”

As with the previous sticker issuance, two sticker types will be available. Residents in unincorporated areas of Pender County will receive either FULL or RECYCLE sticker that corresponds with the amount paid on their tax bill for the annual solid waste fee.

“Since the solid waste fee is paid with your taxes, it was necessary to delay sticker issuance until after the final tax year payment deadline,” stated Keel. “This will help with a more accurate accounting of the solid waste fee payment received from property owners.”

Taxpayers may identify the fees paid by looking at their tax bill. The S64 fee of $220/year is for FULL USE, permitting a resident to use the convenience sites for household trash and recycling. Code S63 on the tax bill with a fee of $110/year is for RECYCLE ONLY.

More detailed information can be found on the Pender County Solid Waste site, www.pendercountync.gov/sw/.
