Why is this project necessary?
The project is needed to address increase flows and to accommodate growth in the region. The project will build a larger pump station and more than six miles of pipe. The project began in September 2015 and should be completed by December 2018.
Construction activities to expect
- Surveying – Crews are currently taking final post-construction measurements.
- Final restoration - Crews are finishing the last sections of pipe installation. Extra dirt will be removed, then final grading, seeding of easements, and removal of construction entrances will take place.
No property damage is expected, including when blasting takes place; however, as a precaution, homes and businesses within 500 feet of any potential blasting will receive the opportunity for a pre-blast survey to record the condition of the property with exterior and interior photography. Customers in the 500-foot area will receive a letter from a third party vendor and supervised by Charlotte Water.
