Mission Statement

Our water system personnel are dedicated to providing the community with safe, clean, healthy, fresh water for drinking and other purposes, 24 hours a day, for a reasonable cost.

Four of the five Dare County water plants are reverse osmosis facilities: Kill Devil Hills, Stumpy Point, Rodanthe and Frisco. The fifth is a fresh water softening plant on Roanoke Island. The five plants provide drinking water for all of the public water supplies from Sanderling to Hatteras Village, Roanoke Island and Stumpy Point.

The Dare County Water Department serves Avon, Buxton, Colington, Duck, Frisco, Hatteras, Kitty Hawk, Roanoke Island, Rodanthe, Salvo, Southern Shores, Stumpy Point, and Waves.
