What to expect:
  • Clearing – Some trees, shrubs, bushes, and other vegetation on the property will be removed. When and where possible, trees are preserved.
  • Equipment delivery and storage – Large equipment and vehicles will access the pump station property using Brandywine Drive, Kishorn Court, Win Hollow Court, and Williams Station Drive.
  • Construction traffic (excavators, dump trucks) in the easements and road right-of-way. Once the pipe is installed near your property, you may continue to see construction traffic along the easements until the pipe is tested, manholes are adjusted and restoration is complete.
  • Normal work hours: 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m., Monday through Friday
  • Photobook of water and wastewater construction
  • Videos

Charlotte Water will remove the wastewater pump stations including some that were purchased from a private utility as part of the 2009 Annexation.

  • Brandywine, 2113 Brandywine Drive
  • Bristol Farms, 8811 Kishorn Court
  • Matthews Common, Tory Oak Place
  • Williams Station, 2835 Williams Station Drive
  • Win Hollow, 8901 Win Hollow Court​
  • Satterwythe, 4320 Satterwythe Lane

New wastewater pipes will flow the community's wastewater via gravity to wastewater pipes downstream. This will reduce the risk of wastewater overflows at the pump stations and protect water quality in area creeks.

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