CAROLINA BEACH - The Town of Carolina Beach will be holding two community workshops to inform and take input from the public on an upcoming infrastructure project to replace aging water and sewer lines in residential areas of Town. Meetings will be held on October 11th from 1:00pm to 4:00 pm and on October 14th from 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm in the Council Chambers to discuss the plan for infrastructure upgrades in Carolina Beach. Earlier this year the Council approved moving forward with a $13 million dollar project to rehabilitate an aging sewer force main that pumps sewage from the main Lift Station in the downtown area across the Island to the Town's Wastewater Treatment Plant off Dow Road. The secondary force main is not currently in use. It's only used in emergency situations when flow exceeds the capacity of the primary force main. The secondary line can't operate at 100% due to the state of the aging line. The project will also replace aging water and sewer lines throughout older residential areas of Town west of Lake Park Blvd and replace the aging water storage tank on Cape Fear Blvd as well as open a new fresh water well.
The overall project is about 34,000 feet of sanitary sewer line replacement or rehab and about 29,000 feet of water line replacement and also bringing a new well online plus replacing the 3-million gallon ground storage tank on Cape Fear Blvd.
The meetings will be held at Town Hall. For more information visit www.carolinabeach.org or call 910-458-2999.
