Abundant Water Supply
For many companies, access to an ample supply of water is just as important as access to roads, electricity and people. No matter how your business uses water—in its manufacturing process, in its cooling process, or for cleaning purposes—you can rest assured that Harnett County can meet your needs.
The Harnett County Regional Water Treatment Plant supplies water to Lillington, Angier, and Coats. In addition, Harnett County also supplies water to various businesses and residents within the five contiguous counties of Cumberland, Lee, Wake, Johnston, and Moore. The plant utilizes the Cape Fear River as the source for the system’s drinking water and was recognized in 2010 for maintaining the “Directors Award of Recognition’ from the Partnership of Safe Water, one of only three in North Carolina to receive this honor. Harnett County is currently expanding the Water Treatment Plant. Work includes upgrading the existing water treatment plant from a capacity of 15 MGD (Million Gallons a Day) to 24 MGD including improvements to the raw water pump station, new mixing station, new flash mix, new SuperPulsator, new conventional filters, retrofit of existing filter to GAC, New UV disinfection, new finish water pump station, new contact chamber and all piping, electrical, and controls for a complete facility.
