More Updates:

  • As North Carolina begins to reopen, Greenville Utilities Commission (GUC) encourages all businesses that have been shut down to take a few minutes and flush their plumbing system. It's an easy way to guarantee their water remains high-quality. More details.
  • Most in-home services requiring employees to enter a customer’s home or business have been suspended, including home energy audits. Customers who require services where GUC employees need to go inside should not be alarmed when employees arrive for the appointment wearing protective gear such as a respirator and Tyvek suit for their own and the customer’s protection. These visits will all be scheduled ahead of time.
  • All tours of the Water Treatment Plant and the Wastewater Treatment Plant are suspended until further notice.
  • All energy audits have been postponed until further notice. We will be happy to assist customers over the phone. Money-saving information can also be found here.
