1. Payment drop box located in the vestibule of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard entrance. Please enclose your payment (checks or money orders only – no cash) in an envelope and label to which department your payment should be directed. Envelopes are provided for your convenience.
2. By mail: Greene County Water Department, P.O. Box 338, Snow Hill, NC 28580
3. Online: From this page, click on the Online Services tab above and scroll down to Pay Property Taxes and Water/Sewer. (A convenience fee is applicable to debit/credit and electronic check payments.)
4. By phone at toll free number 877-690-3729 (a convenience fee is applicable to debit/credit and electronic check payments). You will need your account number and Greene County’s jurisdiction code, which is 4339.

Staff will be available by phone Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 am and 5:00 pm for any questions you may have. Our number is 252-747-2429.
