Mosquito Control Services


The Town of Leland Mosquito Control Program is in effect May 1st – November 1st. This program is controlled by National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permit issued by the State of North Carolina. The Town of Leland is required under this permit to have a certified licensed operator in order to spray.
 Unfortunately the employee who was certified to spray for mosquito recently found employment elsewhere. The town was and still is in the process of having other employees certified. The Town contingency plan is to have Brunswick County Mosquito Control to provide mosquito control services within the Town’s jurisdiction.

Diverging Diamond on NC 133 / Village Closed This Weekend


Diverging Diamond Interchange on N.C. 133 Closing This Weekend
Final paving work to take place

Wilmington –To finish the paving for the Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI) on N.C. 133, the Department of Transportation will close N.C. 133/Village Road/River Road between the interchange ramps for U.S. 17/74/76 near Belville/Leland this weekend. The closure starts at 9 p.m., Friday, Aug. 26. The DDI will open for traffic by 6 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 29.

The weekend closure is necessary so crews can not only complete the paving work, but also put down lane striping for the DDI. The work is weather conditional as it can’t be done if there is rain or a wet roadway.
Motorists on N.C. 133/River Road, south of the interchange, heading toward Village Road in Leland or on U.S. 74 West will be directed onto U.S. 74 East toward Wilmington to follow their detour.  Drivers using Village Road to access N.C.133, south of the interchange or U.S. 74/76 East toward Wilmington should take the ramp onto U.S. 74/76 West toward Whiteville/Myrtle Beach and follow those detour signs.
Drivers are advised to slow down, use caution and stay alert while traveling in the area, and to expect possible delays.

The NCDOT is increasing its use of DDIs because by allowing two directions of traffic to temporarily cross to the left side of a road, they improve safety by creating free flowing turns when entering and exiting a highway, eliminating the need to turn left in front of oncoming traffic. They also reduce congestion by allowing traffic to keep moving through the intersection, and limiting the number of traffic signal cycles that vehicles have to go through.

The opening of this DDI is part of the Causeway Bridge Project, which is scheduled this November.
For real-time travel information, visit the Traveler Services section of NCDOT.gov or follow NCDOT on Twitter.

B.C. Utilities Chlorine


BRUNSWICK COUNTY PUBLIC UTILITIES DEPARTMENT
 
ANNUAL CHANGE FROM CHLORAMINES TO CHLORINE

PUBLIC NOTICE
 

Every summer, Brunswick County and the towns, cities, and other utilities that purchase water from Brunswick County implement an annual flushing program. Public Utilities employees will flush the water mains by opening fire hydrants and allowing them to flow freely for a short period of time. The flushing cleans out sediment and allows routine maintenance of the more than 5,000 fire hydrants in the Brunswick County service area. Flushing may result in some discoloration and the presence of sediment in your water. These conditions are not harmful and should be of short duration.

During this period of time, a slight change is made in the water treatment process to facilitate an effective flushing program. Throughout the year, chloramines, or combined chlorine, is added to the water as the primary disinfectant. During the summer flushing program, chlorine is added in an uncombined state, commonly referred to as free chlorine. Free chlorine is somewhat more volatile than combined chlorine, providing exceptional availability to react with sediments suspended during flushing. Brunswick County will use free chlorine as the primary disinfectant from September 12, 2016, through mid October 2016. Depending on your location within the distribution system and usage patterns, it could take up to a week for your drinking water to transition from combined chlorine to free chlorine at the beginning of the flushing program. The annual change from chloramines to chlorine for this brief period is required by the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality.

You may notice a chlorine taste and odor in your drinking water while free chlorine is utilized. If you are especially sensitive to the taste and odor of chlorine, try keeping an open container of drinking water in your refrigerator. This will enable the chlorine to dissipate thus reducing the chlorine taste. Remember – drinking water has a shelf life! Change out the water in your refrigerated container weekly.

Please note, if you have an aquarium or pond always test the water you add to your aquatic environment to be sure it is free of any chlorine before adding fish or other animals. Chemical additives with directions for removing either free chlorine or chloramines from water for use in fish tanks or ponds are available at pet/fish supply stores.
 
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this process please contact the County’s Public Utilities Department at (910) 253-2657 or (910) 371-3490 or (910) 454-0512 or your local water provider.
