SNEADS FERRY, Onslow County — A group of veterans are helping make sure safe drinking water is available in the Sneads Ferry area.
Oath Keepers veterans are using a machine donated to them to purify water. The process uses chlorine and table salt to purify the water, up to 55 gallons per minute. It’s available 24 hours a day for as long as the need is there.
The community has embraced the group’s effort in many ways. Safe House Tactical has offered the group housing and businesses are giving away food and providing them showers.

Oath Keepers team leader Scott Dunn explains how the purification system donated by Water Step works using simple table salt to purify large quantities of water at 55 gallons per minute.
The Oath Keepers team is being housed by Safe House Tactical and also assisted by The Float Spa and by Guy C Lee Building Materials. We thank the community for their assistance in support of our mission.
We are also providing security for a local community that has been plagued by looters in the wake of flooding.
There will be long term problems due to the damage caused by Hurricane Florence winds, storm surge, excessive rains, and flooding. To help support and expand our Oath Keepers disaster relief teams coming in from other states, please consider donating here. Thank you!
