The Town of Brunswick, with assistance from the North Carolina Rural Water Association, is in the process of developing a Wellhead Protection Program. This is a voluntary program intended to assist us in protecting the system’s water supply from contamination, and to identify vulnerable areas around our wells called “Wellhead Protection Areas”. Another goal of this program is to make residents and businesses aware that chemicals and other pollutants spilled or dumped in the vicinity of the “Wellhead Protection Areas” can be drawn into the wells, possibly contaminating the system’s drinking water supply. Town officials are asking for your help in developing this program. A draft copy of the Wellhead Protection Plan will be available for review and comment at the Brunswick Town Hall for a period of thirty days. You are invited to review the program, and submit any comments or suggestions to the Town of Brunswick. All written public comments will be reviewed by the Wellhead Protection Committee, and any suggestions or comments that may be beneficial will be incorporated into the program. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact Mr. Lenwood Williams, ORC, (910) 642-6731. April 14, 2016

Public Notice Town of Bolton The Town of Bolton, with assistance from the North Carolina Rural Water Association, is in the process of developing their Wellhead Protection Plan. This is a voluntary program intended to assist in protecting the Town’s water supply from contamination, and to identify vulnerable areas around their wells called “Wellhead Protection Areas.” Another goal of this program is to make residents and businesses aware that chemicals and other pollutants spilled or dumped in the vicinity of the “Wellhead Protection Areas” can be drawn into the wells, possibly contaminating the Town’s drinking water supply. A draft copy of the updated Wellhead Protection Plan is available for review and comment at the Bolton Town Hall. The public is invited to review the plan, and submit any comments or suggestions to the Town of Bolton. All written comments will be reviewed by the Wellhead Protection Committee, and any suggestions or comments that may be beneficial will be incorporated into the plan. If you have any questions or comments, please contact, Jackie Hampton at 910-655-8945. August 27, 31, 2015
