Fair Bluff Water Supply Well Replacement

Town of Fair Bluff
Program Area:
Open Grants Program
County of Applicant:

This award provides funding to the Town of Fair Bluff to assist with the replacement water infrastructure that was damaged during Hurricane Matthew and connection of a new water supply well to the town’s water system. After the hurricane damage, the town’s only industry left, Pipeline Plastics, is moving into its former facility and will create 30 new jobs in the first year and up to 60 full-time jobs within the next five years. Wages will be between $36,000 and $38,000, which is above the county average of $34,675. The company expects to make a capital investment of $4,840,000. State regulations require the town to provide at least two water wells for its system, a requirement it cannot meet without this new water infrastructure. The total investment in public infrastructure exceeds $1.5 million. Golden LEAF funds will be used for costs related to the installation of a water line.
