Water Production

The Water Production section maintains all of the City’s water supply wells and water storage tanks, provides chemical treatment of the water and conducts all water quality monitoring as required by State law. This section is responsible for providing and installing water meters and managing our cross-connection control program, in addition to assisting customers with water quality issues.

Water Technician II PROFILE

While much of the water that comes out of taps in Kinston is from the wells that our Water Production section maintains, Kinston is also a member of the Neuse Regional Water and Sewer Authority. NRWASA treats water from the Neuse River with state-of-the-art technology to produce high quality drinking water. Then it is distributed to the various members across Lenoir and Pitt county. The map below shows the regions served by NRWASA. Beneath that is a diagram of it's water purification process.
