Smithfield, NC - Johnston County has lifted the water shortage advisory.  However, we would like to remind all customers of the County’s mandatory year-round conservation policy.  The policy allows for alternate day irrigation for irrigation systems and hose-end sprinklers based on the customer’s address.  Odd number street addresses are allowed to water on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, while even number street addresses are allowed to water on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.  No irrigation is allowed on Mondays.  Pool filling days should correspond with allowed irrigation days. 

Please visit our website at for the full policy and water conservation suggestions.  We sincerely appreciate your cooperation.  Please contact Johnston County Public Utilities at
919-989-5075 with any questions.
