WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) – Governor Roy Cooper announced $462.9 million in funding for water infrastructure projects across the state on Thursday, including over $67 million for projects in Southeastern North Carolina.
“The state typically invests approximately $200 million per year upgrading systems, but thanks to federal funds from the American Rescue Plan and Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, North Carolina is investing $2.3 billion over two years supporting this critical infrastructure,” a release from Cooper’s office said.
Some of the biggest local awards include $15 million to Brunswick County for the Longwood Road Sewer Project and $25 million to Rocky Point/Topsail Water & Sewer for a reverse osmosis water treatment plant and associated improvements.
The NC Department of Environmental Quality awarded funding to 249 projects, and it received 734 funding applications.
