Funding for this project will be used to construct an 87,500 feet water line running from Albemarle to Concord. The Cities of Concord and Kannapolis' combined water demand is surpassing their capacity. It is more regionally beneficial and cost effective to utilize existing potable water sources by connecting nearby public systems than developing new water sources. This water line will run through a sparsely populated area, which will minimize construction cost and inconvenience to the general public. The proposed water line will run parallel to NC 49 from an existing 30inch stub near the intersection of NC 49 and Main Street in Richfield to the termination of an existing 30inch line near the Cabarrus Arena and Events Center located at the intersection NC 49 and Old Airport Road. A portion of the water line will be constructed along Fisher Road, Moose Road, and NC 73 in order to avoid any major impact to existing development along NC 49. Also associated with the project is the construction of two water booster stations, a ground storage tank, and approximately 12,000 feet of 24inch line needed to access an existing elevated tank owned and operated by the City of Concord.
