Welcome to Carthage, North Carolina

Carthage, the county seat for Moore County, was incorporated in 1796. The name was changed to Fagansville in 1806 in honor of Richardson Fagin for letting the county seat be moved from his house to another tract of land he donated to the county. The name was changed back to Carthage in 1818. The exact reason is unknown, but we've been called Carthage ever since.

From: Allen Smith, Public Works Director


The Town of Carthage Water Treatment Plant will temporarily change the method of disinfection in its public water supply March 1st through March 31st. The water plant normally uses Chloramine, a controlled mixture of Ammonia and Chlorine, to disinfect the water. Throughout the month of March, we will use Chorine only, also known as “Free Chlorine”.

The periodic and temporary conversion from Chloramines to free Chlorine, which is a normal procedure for water systems, ensures the highest quality of water safety in the distribution system.

Free Chlorine is a stronger disinfectant than Chloramine. As a result, users may experience a slight change in the appearance of the water during conversion, including a noticeable odor and slight discoloration. Most of these characteristics should lessen after the first few days and does not affect water quality or safety. The water plant staff will monitor Chlorine levels and water quality standards in the distribution system on a daily basis to ensure the safety of the water and that all regulatory standards are met. We apologize for any inconvenience but rest assured that this process helps ensure high quality water for all of our Carthage customers.

For more information, please call David Mckew, Water treatment Plant ORC, at (910) 947-2701 or Allen Smith (PWD) at (910)947-2331
