GASTONIA, N.C. – Gaston County is announcing the dedication of a portion of funding received through the Federal Government as part of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) and the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds to the extension of a water line that will service Lowell Elementary School. The project was one of several already identified for funding as part of the $43,612,126 Gaston County was awarded through ARPA.
This project includes the design and installation of approximately 400 feet of new waterline to serve Lowell Elementary School. It will replace an older 2-inch waterline that was served by McAdenville and Two Rivers Utilities. The new waterline will tie into the City of Lowell’s system near the intersection of Riverview and Saxony drives and provide clean and reliable water from the City of Lowell to Lowell Elementary School. The project is now in the final design phase.
Following construction of the waterline, Gaston County will turn over ownership of the new waterline to the City of Lowell for operation and maintenance.
More information about the County’s planned ARPA projects is available on the Gaston County website.
