The Anson County Utilities Departments mission is to provide safe and reliable water and wastewater service that meets or exceeds state and federal regulations.  Anson County Utilities will strive to meet customers demand with fast, friendly, and cost effective services.


The use of Anson County Water Department fire hydrants for obtaining water for agricultural or any other purpose without written consent of the Water Department is a violation of state and federal law.  Hydrants are for use by written-permitted users, water company or fire department personnel only.  The Anson County Water Department will take legal action against any individual or business that unlawfully obtains water from the Anson County water system.  Please report suspicious activity to the Anson County Sheriff's Office or the Water Department.  Hydrant use permit information is available from the Anson County Water Department.  Information is available at 704-694-5208.


On occasion the Water Department will have interruption of service due to maintenance and line breaks.  We will make every effort possible to restore service in a timely manner.
