Annual Water System Treatment Underway
Through April 6th, residents in and around Clayton may notice the scent of chlorine coming from their tap water. THIS IS NORMAL. Your water will still be safe to drink and to use for cooking, bathing and all other household purposes. All year long, Johnston County, which provides Clayton's drinking water, treats its water systems with a blend of chlorine AND ammonia. Chlorine helps to kill bacteria. Every year, federal law requires water systems to change up their water-treatment mixture – from the usual blend of chlorine AND ammonia – to a chlorine-ONLY treatment.

Construction on Greenway Extension Underway
Clayton is building a $3.5 million pedestrian tunnel and greenway extension into Downtown Clayton! Construction has closed Legend Park and will mean temporary shutdowns of O’Neil Street and the Sam’s Branch Trailhead and parking area - exact dates have not been determined, but the closure of O'Neil will likely be in the spring of 2020 and will mean drivers needing to detour down Covered Bridge and City Road. The greenway will connect to Legend Park, giving walkers, runners and bicyclists a safe and scenic trail into Downtown Clayton.
