Vest WTP to Franklin WTP Water Pipe Project
Project phase


 Project updates

Charlotte Water is in the design phase for an upcoming pipeline project in the Beatties Ford and Brookshire neighborhoods that will optimize the function of the water distribution system in the growing community. Once completed, the new 16-inch pipeline will enhance the water treatment process for customers in the area.

  • Construction start: June 2023
  • Construction duration: 12 months
Contractors will install more than 16,000 linear feet of 16-inch pipe from the Vest Water Treatment Plant (WTP) to the Franklin Water Treatment Plant (WTP). This new pipeline will allow for the transfer of waste solids (residuals) from the Vest WTP to the Franklin WTP, which has larger facilities and advanced processes in place to manage the residuals.

  • Enhance the water treatment process for customers in the area
  • Eliminate the cost of a third party removing the residuals from the Vest WTP

Areas near construction will be notified before fieldwork activities and construction. If there are any planned impacts to water service, customers will be notified in advance. If there is an unplanned water outage, crews will work to fix it immediately.

​$9.5 million
