State to Fund Union County Water and Sewer Needs

The recently passed North Carolina State Budget contains millions of dollars for Union County to make sorely needed improvements to its water and sewer systems.  The final version contains the following funding allocations:

  • Union County Water/Sewer - $26,000,000
  • Waxhaw Greywater System - $1,500,000
  • Wingate Water/Sewer System - $12,000,000
  • Marshville Water/Sewer - $1,000,000
  • Muddy Creek Water/Sewer - $11,000,000 

These funds are significant and should assist in enabling the County and associated municipalities to meet its current and immediate future water/sewer infrastructure needs.  The bill will become effective on October 2nd as Governor Cooper has announced his intention to let it become law without his signature.  To view the State Budget in its entirety, click this link.
