The Edgecombe County Water Department's mission is to provide, operate and maintain a public water supply system with its customers' health, safety and well-being as its first priority.


Edgecombe County lies in the central portion of the Coastal Plain. Potable water to serve the county Water Districts is surface water taken from the Tar River, which is supplied through agreements with the City of Rocky Mount and the Town of Tarboro.

The County is subdivided into five Water and Sewer Districts. Of those five districts, Districts 1, 2, 3, and 5 are fully constructed and serving a large portion of the County.  District 4 is the smallest and most rural of all the districts within Edgecombe County. District 4 construction is divided into 3 phases of construction. Phase I & II are complete. Phase III will be underway in summer of 2011 with atticipated construction time being 360 days. Phase III will include installation of water lines along roads in District 4 not covered under Phase I & II. It will also replace the water lines in the town of Speed along with adding a 200,000 gallon elevated storage tank. This district is anticipated to supply water to approximately 450 customers.
