Moncure, NC - Chatham County invites residents to a community meeting on Wednesday, September 8, at 7 pm at the Moncure Fire Station to learn more about a plan proposed by a partnership of four towns in western Wake County to construct a regional wastewater treatment facility. The plan involves a discharge line that would cut through a section of southeastern Chatham County.

The meeting will include an overview of the project, exhibits and time for attendees to ask questions. A representative of the Western Wake Regional Wastewater Management Partnership (WWP) will provide the project details.

The towns involved in the WWP are Cary, Apex, Morrisville and Holly Springs. All would be served by the proposed facility.

Although Chatham County would not receive wastewater services through the facility, the project would require construction of a discharge line to carry treated water from the wastewater system to the Cape Fear River. Several miles of this line would cut through areas of Chatham County near New Hill and Merry Oaks, continuing southward near Christian Chapel Road and Buckhorn Road to the Buckhorn Dam on the Cape Fear River.

The Western Wake Partners have requested approval by Chatham County for the discharge line through 8.1 miles of Chatham County. The main purpose of this meeting is to listen to what residents have to say about the project, especially the proposed discharge line.

The partnership was initiated in 2002 with a regional study that also involved Wake County and Fuquay-Varina. The study results led the four partner towns to move forward with plans to construct the treatment facilities to serve their communities until 2030.

For more information, including maps, minutes and key documents, see the WWP website. Residents also can contact Stephen J. Brown, PE, Director, Town of Cary Public Works & Utilities, 919-469-4090, for more information.
