Richmond County Energy Park Wastewater Line

County of Richmond
Program Area:
Community-Based Grants Initiative
County of Applicant:

The purpose of this grant is to help Richmond County extend its wastewater collection system to a new 700-plus-acre industrial park. The project includes construction of a new sewer pump station and the 10” force main needed to connect it to the wastewater treatment plant. The county has secured a five-year option on the property, which is already certified by the Duke Energy Site Readiness Program for heavy industrial use. The site is adjacent to a Duke Energy plant, has a natural gas transmission line and water service, is located 0.25 miles from Interstate 74, and has rail in the immediate area. The county has received inquiries about the park even though it has not begun to market the site aggressively and expects it to attract industrial clients that will create new jobs and private investment. Golden LEAF funds will be used for the new pump station and force main construction. Richmond County has been awarded $1,000,000 from the Industrial Development Fund at NC Commerce and has committed the balance of funding needed for the project.
