Mooresville Southern Wastewater Improvements Project 

  • In 2019 the Town approached Banning Engineering to review their existing wastewater infrastructure to the south of White Lick Creek.   
  • While improvements had been made in some areas, much of the infrastructure was from the 1970’s and 1980’s.   
  • Banning was awarded the design work based on the findings of the initial planning study and the upgrades were broken up into two phases.   
  • The first phase called for the replacement of two lift stations, one with a pumpage rate of 800 gallons per minute and the other with a pumpage rate of 1400 gallons per minute.  New forcemains would have to be installed to accommodate the increased flow.   
  • The second phase includes the decommissioning of a lift station to connect via gravity to one of the lift stations in the first phase.   
  • Additionally, a large 1,000 gallon per minute station would replace an existing dual siphon crossing White Lick Creek and two other lift stations would be retrofitted with new pumps, electrical/controls, and back-up generators.   
  • Phase 1 is nearing completion and is expected to be operational by July 2021. 
  • Phase 2 is expected to be bid in the fall of 2021 and construction is expected to be completed at the end of 2022.
