Can you tell me a bit about where the county gets its water? Is LCFWSA the main source? Are there others?

County Answer: The raw water that comes to the Northwest Water Treatment Plant is sourced through the LCFWSA; all Brunswick County water customers receive either all or part of their water from this water treatment plant. The Cape Fear River is the only source of water available to meet all the current and future demand within Brunswick County Public Utilities service area. The County also has the 211 Water Treatment Plant, which pulls water from groundwater wells, however, the service area for this plant is smaller and customers in this area receive a blend of water from both plants.
