    I've only been here for 3 years and I have seen multiple advisories issued for Pamlico County. I actually called the water department to complain about the quality of water. My faucets are clogged and corroded. The water department told me that they had not flushed our lines and would send someone to flush the system thru the hydrants. My biggest complaint is, unless I read about the advisory we don't have any idea that there is a problem. Why can't the county use all of the local media, including radio and run a banner across the TV saying there is a problem?
