QUEEN OF NORTH CAROLINA 2 Queen Of North Carolina The City of Charlotte is the most extensive public water and wastewater system in North Carolina and seventeenth in the country. Servicing more than a million customers, Charlotte Water seems to have their water and sewage issues under control. In the Beginning The City Council of Charlotte recognize the need for their water supply in 1870, but it would take until 1876 for the first pipes to be laid. “Charlotte Water Works Company” would finally be realized in 1881.[The15] Starting a service In 1899, the Charlotte City Council decided to purchase the company and start providing drinking water and fire service protection to the residents. At the time that Charlotte Water Works was purchased 50,000 gallons standpipe, a pressure regulator in Dilwater, was constructed for the fire protection. The City of Charlotte was on its way.[The15] The early 1900s A five million gallon a day filtering and pumping station were built on Irwin Creek which was less than a mile from the Vest Water Treatment facility. However, by 1911, the facility had failed due to a severe water shortage. Water had to be brought in by train to service the residents. A new facility had to be developed to maintain water capability to the growing city.[The15]

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
