Cabarrus Acres subdivision will soon benefit from sewer service from McGill Associates, an engineering firm contracted by the Town of Midland. The project will be funded through a low (0%) interest rate State Revolving Fund (SRF) loan amounting to $1,200,000 if the town completes the first steps of processing by July 2.
In order for the town to benefit from this fund, the council and staff must submit an Engineering Report to Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) by July 2. The fund is offered from the N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources. If the report is not submitted before that date, the funding will not be available. Once the report is approved the town can proceed with construction plans and specifications.
Richard Flowe, the Midland Planning, Zoning, and Subdivision Administrator, described this as an “exciting opportunity for the town and we want to maintain the pace.”
The low interest loan would be combined with a $1,200,000 grant from the Clean Water Management Trust Fund giving the town $2.4 million in total.
The project will affect approximately 50 residents within the Cabarrus Acres Subdivision located off of Midland Road. The preliminary engineering fee for McGill Associates will be $23,000, which does not include design, permitting, surveying, geotechnical, bidding and award, construction observation, or construction administration services.
The town hopes to have construction begin between March and August of 2013.
“This is a monumental time and place in Midland’s brief history as an incorporated town,” said Flowe.
