Hwy 226 Waterline Replacement

Town of Spruce Pine
Program Area:
Community-Based Grants Initiative
County of Applicant:

This award provides funding to the Town of Spruce Pine to construct a mile-long, 8” waterline that will run adjacent to NC Hwy 226, south from Spruce Pine Town Hall to connect to an existing 8” waterline in a business and industrial district. This infrastructure improvement will provide higher water pressure and volume to serve existing business and industry along the NC Hwy 226 corridor and will enable industries, like Buck Stove, to meet fire suppression requirements for expansion needs. The line will also serve a 90-acre tract on this corridor, one of the few industrial sites available for development in the county. The waterline project is written in the county’s current Economic Development Strategic Plan and coincides with NCDOT’s scheduled widening of NC Hwy 226. Golden LEAF funds will be used for waterline-related construction costs.
