The amount of rain our area has received over the past ten months has created serious erosion and flooding problems throughout the county. Erosion along Sugar Creek washed out one force main sewer line (which has been repaired), and could potentially impact a gravity sewer line in the same area. To prevent this, we are working with Stewart Engineering and WK DIckson to re-establish and stabilize the creek bank.
Steele Creek Force Main Replacement
This 30 inch force main will run from the Steele Creek bridge on US-21 to the Rock Hill Waste Water Treatment Plant on the Catawba River, a distance of approximately seven miles. This design-build project is being done by HDR Engineering and State Utilities Construction. The project is entering its final design and permitting phase. Easement acquisition and negotiation is also underway, and construction is projected to begin in the spring of 2022.
Crowders Creek Lift Station Replacement
This sewage lift station in the Lake Wylie area is being upgraded. Design for the station began in the summer of 2021, and it should be complete and ready to go out for construction bids in the summer of 2022.
