City of Mount Holly

Charlotte Water is partnering with the City of Mount Holly and the City of Belmont to implement a regional partnership for future wastewater management to serve communities in northwestern Mecklenburg County and eastern Gaston County.

This partnership will allow the City of Mount Holly to provide more cost-effective and environmentally-conscious wastewater management services to our residents and customers, while also ensuring that they have the necessary infrastructure and treatment capacity to manage future wastewater flow projections.

Charlotte Water will be providing services for our wastewater treatment needs only; the City of Mount Holly Utilities Department will continue to provide the water treatment services for the community.

Our coordination with Charlotte Water will allow us to:

  • Decrease the number of places where wastewater is discharged to the Catawba River.
  • Avoid making high-cost upgrades to the existing Belmont Wastewater Treatment Plant.
  • Reduce the cost of future wastewater treatment expansions or upgrades by taking advantage of inclusion in a larger regional facility.
  • Eliminate the management of technical requirements to meet ever tightening wastewater treatment regulations now and into the future.
  • Repurpose the current wastewater treatment plant site for new city uses.
