Arborwood Smoke Tree and Spreading Oak Water Replacement Project


Project phase


 Project updates

  • CLTWater will replace pipe under the street that is past its useful life.
  • Project will enhance water quality and pressure.
  • Staff will notify affected customers of planned water outages 72-hours in advance.
  • Any unplanned water outages are considered emergencies and will be repaired as soon as possible.
  • Construction may cause temporary cloudy, discolored water or lower than usual pressure. If you experience this, please run cold water for up-to 15 minutes. If water doesn't clear, please call 311 and say or select 'water emergency' for assistance.
  • Project includes restoration of affected sidewalks and roadways
  • CLTWater works with CDOT and NCDOT to minimize traffic disruption. CDOT permitted road closures are posted on the CDOT's website.
  • Updates will be posted on this website and NextDoor.
  • Lane closures may be required daily in coordination with CDOT. 


Mecklenburg County building codes require pressure-reducing valves (PRVs) to be installed on new or remodeled residential plumbing where there is evidence of water pressure exceeding 80 psi. A PRV reduces the water pressure coming into your home to protect your plumbing much the same way that an electrical surge protector protects your computer or television. CLTWater estimates that customers will experience water pressure in excess of 80 psi on this/these streets. During your next visit by a plumber ask to have your existing PRV checked. If you do not have a PRV, consider having water pressure tested to see if you may want one installed.


Properties that will be directly affected by construction will be contacted to discuss easement agreements. Areas near construction will be notified before construction.
