Important Information for Town of Clayton North (Riverwood Athletic Club) Water Customers:
On July 24, 2023, Johnston County will convert the water distribution system that serves your area from Johnston East to Johnston West. This will change the disinfectant in your water supply from chlorine to chloramines (combination of chlorine and ammonia). This modification is intended to benefit your service area by reducing the levels of disinfection byproducts (DBPs) in the system, while still providing protection from waterborne disease.
It is important for anyone dependent on kidney dialysis machines to recognize this change of disinfectants and consult with their health care professional. Furthermore, chloraminated water may be toxic to some fish. If you have a fish tank, additional treatment modifications may be required.
Most customers will not notice a difference in their water, but some may detect slight taste and odor changes. The Town in coordination with Johnston County will conduct water main flushing in your area when the supply modifications are made. The flushing modifications may result in some minor and temporary discoloration of water that does not affect water quality.
If you experience any water quality issues that cannot be cleared by flushing the lines inside your home or have any questions, please contact Town of Clayton Water Resources at 919-553-1530.
