Public Works



In the interest of the safety of our visitors and staff, the Greene County Water Department will begin "social distancing" measures in order to limit the interaction between the public and County staff.  These measures will begin on Tuesday, March 17th and continue until further notice.  Our doors will be locked, however, payments will still be accepted via the following methods:
1.  Payment drop box located in the vestibule of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard entrance.  Please enclose your payment (checks or money orders only - no cash) in an envelope and label to which department your payment should be directed.  Envelopes are provided for your convenience.
2.  By mail:  Greene County Water Department, P.O. Box 338, Snow Hill, NC  28580
3.  Online.  From this page, click on the Online Services tab above and scroll down to Pay Property Taxes and Water/Sewer.  (A convenience fee is applicable to debit/credit and electronic check payments.)
4.  By phone at toll free number 877-690-3729 (a convenience fee is applicable to debit/credit and electronic check payments).  You will need your account number and Greene County's jurisdiction code, which is 4339.
Staff will be available by phone Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 am and 5:00 pm for any questions you may have.  Our number is 252-747-2429.
As we work to limit potential exposure to COVID-19, we appreciate your patience and understanding.
Thank you
