On Dec. 4, the Brunswick County Board of Commissioners listened to a presentation from staff about the County’s intention to request proposals from qualified engineering, environmental and water resource firms to evaluate water treatment improvement options for the Northwest Water Treatment Plant.
“This is a major step forward in protecting the long-term safety and viability of our public drinking water supply,” said County Manager Ann Hardy. “We will hire the most qualified firm to review multiple options, and ultimately make a recommendation specific to Brunswick County. This due diligence is critical to ensure that we construct a facility that most effectively removes all contaminants of concern, not just those that have received recent media and public attention.”
The selected firm will provide a draft study, with options and cost estimates, to the Board of Commissioners by March 19, 2018, with a final report on April 16, 2018. The selected option will be included in the FY 19 Capital Improvement Plan for design, with construction to commence in FY 20.
