Public Utilities

The Public Utilities Department manages the city water and sewer systems. The department operates and maintains a water treatment facility, two wastewater treatment facilities, more than 400 miles of water and sewer lines, and sixteen sewer pump stations.

Our charge is to treat and deliver safe drinking water to the citizens of Lenoir and surrounding communities, and to collect wastewater from those communities and treat it to a level of quality which is not harmful to the environment. Days, nights, weekends or holidays, you can be assured that the employees of the City of Lenoir Public Utilities Department's five divisions are on the job for our customers. - Radford Thomas, Public Utilities Director.
