This grant will support the City of Mount Airy’s and the Town of Pilot Mountain’s plan to work together with other municipalities to market and deliver water to new customer populations outside Surry County in order to meet system operating expenses without having to increase customer rates each year. Both water systems have substantial excess capacity built for industries that are no longer in business locally and have determined that reducing production capacity will not reduce operating expenses enough to have any appreciable impact. King is currently studying the feasibility of installing an interconnection with Forsyth City/County Utilities. Golden LEAF funds will be used to fund the preliminary engineering report and environmental assessment report for interconnecting the Mount Airy, Pilot Mountain and King water systems.
