Public Utilities

Ocean Isle Beach provides both water and sewer services to its residents. In 1998, the Town added a second water tower, with a capacity of 250,000 gallons to accommodate residents on the western portion of the island.  

Recently the Town completed the installation of additional water and sewer lines under the Intracoastal Waterway. These additional lines will help to ensure the ability to operate in the event of an emergency.

Our public utilities department is committed to public service and can be reached at 910-579-2166.
