Interim Strategies

The Central Coastal Plain Capacity Use Area (CCPCUA) groundwater usage reductions in Martin County will occur in three phases:

  Williamston, WSD 2 WSD 1
Phase 1 - August 1, 2008 25% Reduction 10% Reduction
Phase 2 - August 1, 2013 50% Reduction 20% Reduction
Phase 3 - August 1, 2018 75% Reduction 30% Reduction

Because of the second phase of reductions and the fact that the water treatment plant is not scheduled to be operational until July 2015, our communities needed a way to address water needs prior to the completion of the water treatment plant. The intermediate needs were addressed through two projects:

  1. Interconnection with Robersonville to purchase water on a short-term basis
  2. Construction of an additional well (using credits from a former Penco Company well in Hamilton)
The construction of an interconnection with the Town of Robersonville was completed in January 2013. The Town of Williamston started buying water August 1, 2013 from the MCRWASA to fulfill its daily needs.

The construction of a new water supply well, the Penco well began in December 2012. The Penco well (now known as MCRWASA well #1) was completed in 2015.
