East Yancey/Micaville Water Extension

Town of Burnsville
Program Area:
Community Assistance Initiative
County of Applicant:

The purpose of this grant is to provide funding to the Town of Burnsville for a project to install 13,050 LF of 12-inch and 850 LF of 8-inch public water line and associated appurtenances along US Highway 19E and NC Highway 80 into the Micaville community in East Yancey County. The line will originate in Windom, the end point of the first major infrastructure project completed along the 19E corridor in the mid-1980s and will extend to the Micaville Elementary School. This project will complement a $6.3 million project currently underway to construct a complete sewer system and treatment plant to serve the greater Micaville community as well as the current NCDOT widening project of US Highway 19E. This new infrastructure will serve the elementary schools, businesses and churches along the route and will allow Yancey County to market three vacant acreage parcels as industrial sites.
