Sanford, Chatham County Extend Sewer Service to Moncure Megasite
At its regularly scheduled meeting on October 16, the Sanford City Council awarded approximately $12 million in construction contracts to extend the City of Sanford’s wastewater collection system to the Moncure Megasite.
Located near the intersection of Old U.S. 1 and U.S. 1, the 2,500-acre North Carolina Certified Site is a cooperative endeavor between the City of Sanford and Chatham County. It is expected to serve as an economic development catalyst that will benefit Chatham, Harnett, Lee, and Wake counties, the central Carolina region, and the state as a whole.
“Working together with the City of Sanford to fully develop the Moncure Megasite builds on both of our strengths,” says Diana Hales, chair of the Chatham County Board of Commissioners. Connecting the site to the Big Buffalo Wastewater Treatment is a fundamental component of making it competitive across the state and nation, she says.Read more about the wastewater extension project »
