The Craven County Water Department works with other County Departments to ensure pure, safe drinking water. The Water Department, in conjunction with Planning and Inspections, is responsible for the issuance of permits to citizens who wish to improve upon or build new homes and businesses with respect to water lines. This department is  also responsible for providing uninterrupted service to all users of water service, as well as the timely billing and collection of payment. The Craven County Water Department presently provides service to the residents of Townships 1, 3, 7, 9 and portions of Townships 5, 6 and 8.
