This new 1.5 million gallon tank is located on Baxter Lane, just off of Carolina Commons Parkway and US 21. It was designed by Kimley-Horn Engineering of Charlotte and built by CB&I, LLC of Alpharetta Georgia, which specializes in elevated tanks like this one. Because it is an elevated tank (standing 180 feet tall) it provides not only greater capacity to the water system in the Carowinds-Regent Park area, but also pressure resiliency to the system in case of a major fire or water line break in that area.
Eastern System Waterline Loop Connections
This project creates 'waterline loops' on several dead-end lines throughout the eastern water distribution system. These loops enhance water quality by improving circulation, as well as augmenting pressure and reliability. Design was by CES Engineering, and was constructed by Garawco Construction.
Gold Hill Watermain Extension
The Gold Hill watermain project extends a 16-inch waterline south along Gold Hill Road from Forestway Drive, across Steele Creek and down to Deerfield Parkway. Here, it ties into the south Gold Hill waterline before crossing I-77. This project - improving flow, pressure and system reliability - was designed by Armstrong Glen and built by Fuller Company and Construction.
Steele Creek Sewage Lift Station Replacement (and Force Main)
This new sewage lift station, located off of Deerfield Drive in Fort Mill, was recently placed into service to replace an old station at the same site. This state-of-the-art automated regional station will serve the eastern portion of York County for years to come. It was designed by HDR Engineering of Charlotte, and constructed by Haren Construction of Etowah, TN. Along with the new lift station, several hundred feet of new force main were installed from the station to a connection on Highway 21 just south of Steele Creek.
