Elkin also has a 60 million gallon reservoir and four storage tanks that hold a total of 1.9 million gallons of water. The plant draws from the Big Elkin Creek, an excellent raw water source that should serve the Town well into the future.

The Town maintains 50 miles of water lines. We strive to keep every mile operable at all times. There may be times when our crews need to interrupt your service to make repairs, as we try to keep your lines in excellent working condition.

The Town of Elkin’s leak policy is as follows. After the leak has been fixed, the resident must bring to Town Hall documentation such as a receipt from a plumber, etc. All adjustments are based on a six-month average. The Town of Elkin will adjust the sewer charge to average and the water charge will be adjusted off of ½ of average. If the high usage is for two months or longer, the Town will adjust one month only using the highest bill.
