North Carolina: $282 Million for Water & Sewer Improvement Projects

Raleigh, NC (STL.News) Governor Roy Cooper announced today $282 million in loans and grants to help pay for 94 drinking water and wastewater projects statewide.

The project funding was approved at the State Water Infrastructure Authority’s Feb. 10 meeting.  The Authority is an independent body with primary responsibility for awarding federal and state funding for water and wastewater infrastructure projects.  Other responsibilities include developing a state water infrastructure master plan, recommending ways to maximize the use of available loan and grant funding resources, and examining best and emerging practices.

“North Carolina’s communities need resilient, viable water infrastructure systems to support economic development.  Funding these projects helps counties and towns with aging water infrastructure deliver clean, safe water to attract new jobs and keep people healthy,” said Governor Cooper.

Notable projects in the latest funding round include:

  • Brunswick County will receive a $2,852,818 State Reserve grant to pay for extensive rehabilitation of the sewer system in Navassa.
  • Brunswick County will also receive $2,218,967 through a Drinking Water State Revolving Fund loan, with 100 percent principal forgiveness, for extensive rehabilitation of Navassa’s drinking water system.  Navassa recently consolidated with Brunswick County.
