GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) Greenville Utilities will continue “Operation Spring Clean,” from May 3 through May 8, in all areas south of East Fifth Street between Charles Boulevard to Greenville Boulevard.
Operation Spring Clean is our annual preventive maintenance program to ensure that GUC customers continue to receive high-quality water.
From Sunday evening through Friday morning, cleaning will be conducted from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m., to minimize inconvenience to customers.
During the 13-week cleaning program, all 632 miles of water distribution lines on GUC’s system will be cleaned.
Cleaning involves opening fire hydrants and allowing them to flow freely for a short time.
If customers have air or discolored water in their water lines as a result of “Operation Spring Clean,” GUC recommends turning on the cold water faucet in the bathtub and running the water for 5 to 10 minutes.
Although there is no health risk, GUC advises customers to avoid washing clothes until the water is clear.
The system-wide cleaning program will end June 12th.
Call GUC at 252-551-1551 for specific information on the Operation Spring Clean schedule.
