The Town of Kill Devil Hills’ top priority continues to be the health, safety, and well-being of its citizens. Offices at the Town Hall are currently open; however, access is restricted. Access into the Town Hall will be granted by an appointment only.
Kill Devil Hills Public Services Staff, as well as crews from Landmark Structures and Hatchell Concrete, have been busier than usual over the last several weeks preparing the Town’s new water tower for operation. The Town of Kill Devil Hills is pleased to announce that water is now flowing from the new tower!
Before filling the 400,000-gallon bowl, it was disinfected to ensure high-quality water. After sanitization, crews began to fill the tank. The new tank was connected to the pump station and water was sent up the 160’ tower. (It took less than a day to fill the 400,000-gallon bowl!) Once filled, a water sample was collected and tested for quality assurance. The passing sample was also approved for quality by the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources.
It is anticipated that the deconstruction of the 56-year-old water tower will occur sometime in the fall. Before demolition will begin, cellular antennas from the old tank must be removed and placed on top of the 180’ monopole cell tower, which is also nearing completion.

At its June 29th meeting, the Board of Commissioners adopted the following resolution and policy:
We are officially in hurricane season. Planning for hurricane season and other potential disasters can be stressful, especially during the pandemic. Give yourself more time than usual to prepare.
Learn more about preparing for hurricanes during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We have the opportunity to enjoy a beautiful and clean beach. Please remove all personal items from the beach each day. In Kill Devil Hills, leaving items on the beach overnight is prohibited.
Items left on the beach can be harmful to people, including emergency responders, and wildlife, like hatchling sea turtles that must make their way to the water to survive.
And, don’t forget to fill in all sand holes, which also create extreme hazards for others when left unattended.
We want all people and wildlife to be able to continue enjoying a litter-free beach!
Ocean conditions on the Outer Banks can change rapidly and without notice. Take extra precautions by signing up to receive beach related alerts by texting "Join OBXBEACHCONDITIONS" to 30890. Once you no longer need updates, simply text "STOP" to 30890.
Swimming in the ocean is not the same as swimming in a pool or lake. Wind, waves, the change of the tide, the slope of the beach, an other factors can cause strong currents to be present in the water even on the calmest days. Ocean conditions can change from day to day and hour to hour. Before going in the water, spend a few moments watching the waves. Wave patterns are a good indicator of the presence of currents and of places where deep water and other "surprises" are located.
