Projects

Mallard Creek Interceptor Improvement Project
Project phase

 

 Project updates

  • Charlotte Water has partnered with Stantec (engineering) and RH Price (construction) to assist with the analysis, design, and construction of a new sanitary sewer in the Mallard Creek Basin area.
  • The Mallard Creek Basin service area is mainly residential, with increasing commercial development around the new Blue Line Extension, UNC Charlotte, and the University Research Park. Infrastructure improvements are needed, not only to support current flows and maintain required service levels within the Mallard Creek Basin but to keep pace with the rapid growth and development of the greater Charlotte area.
  • These improvements are scheduled to take place in three phases starting from the Mallard Creek Reclamation Facility.

What To Expect

Planning & Design

  • Phase I & II of the project include the planning and design phase of the work. The public may see surveyors and engineers in the corridor of Mallard Creek from Mallard Creek Road to Astoria Drive.
  • Surveyors and engineers will review site conditions and begin developing alignments where current piping is inadequate.
  • Field investigation work will take place along Mallard Creek Greenway, which runs alongside Mallard Creek through various properties.
  • Easement Acquisition: Properties identified for a potential easement or temporary construction easement agreement along the proposed project routes will be contacted to discuss the easement acquisition process. An easement agreement allows CLT Water usage of part of a property owner's land after an agreement has been reached.

Construction

  • Clearing of trees, shrubs, etc. within the easement area will be removed and preserved if possible.
  • Trench digging and tunneling under roads
  • Underground rock blasting
  • Construction traffic (excavators, trucks) along the project area and within the easements right of way

Project Schedule

  • March 2022: Phase I & II Design Begins
  • Sept 2023: Phase I Construction Begins
  • Feb 2025: Phase II Construction Begins
