Johnston County Public Utilities Water Shortage Advisory Lifted

For Immediate Release:  June 23, 2022


Smithfield, NC – Johnston County Public Utilities has lifted the water shortage advisory issued on June 21, 2022. However, we would like to remind all customers of the County’s year-round mandatory 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.
