Ammonia Temporarily Dropped From Harnett County Water Treatment

The change, which is mandatory under a state policy that governs the operation, will begin March 1. Ammonia will be added again beginning on March 31.

Water customers affected by the change include people who pay water bills to Harnett County Public Utilities as well as those who pay bills to Lillington, Angier, Coats, Linden, Fuquay-Varina, Holly Springs, Spring Lake, Moore County Public Utilities — Vass, East Moore Water District, and Aqua.
