Cane Court Water Pipe Relocation Project


Project phase


 Project updates

  • Replace more than 500 feet of pipes due to age
  • ​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.
  • 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.
  • Lane closures may be required daily in coordination with CDOT. 
  • 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.​​
  • The project will enhance water quality and pressure.
  • The 2-inch galvanized water main will be replaced. 
​Areas near construction will be notified before construction. There will be planned water outages to move customer’s service. Property owners will be notified in advance. If there is an unplanned water outage, crews will work to fix it immediately.

​To be ​determined
