Bessemer City-TRU Water Interconnection

City of Bessemer City
Program Area:
Open Grants Program
County of Applicant:

This project supports the installation of a water booster pump station, piping, and appurtenances to allow Gastonia’s Two Rivers Utilities (TRU) to serve Bessemer City’s water system and South Ridge Industrial Park. The interconnection with TRU will provide up to 2.5 million gallons per day of additional water supply on a consistent basis that will serve the park’s heavy water users, which include a Dole’s salad-bagging plant and Livent, a manufacture of a key component of lithium-ion batteries. In addition to other sites at the park, the project will also serve Dhollandia, a manufacturer of hydraulic lift gates for trucks, which completed construction of a 280,000 square foot North American Headquarters in Bessemer City in 2019 and is expected to create 150-200 jobs.
