Wastewater generated from consumptive use in northeastern Mecklenburg County is discharged into the Rocky River Basin via two wastewater treatment plants. CLT Water intends to offset some wastewater flows that are currently tributary to the Rocky River Basin due to transfer constraints, limited treatment capacities, and dramatic growth in northeastern Mecklenburg County that is anticipated to continue for the foreseeable future.
CLT Water is proposing the construction of a new Clarke Creek Pumping Station and Force Main, which would involve a new pumping station close to the Mecklenburg-Cabarrus County line to divert a portion of Clarke Creek Basin flows to the McDowell Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant located in northwestern Mecklenburg County.
