In the late 1990s, the NC Division of Water Resources recognized that regional groundwater supplies in eastern North Carolina were being depleted due to overuse The Martin County Regional Water and Sewer Authority (MCRWASA) was formed in 2007 to address this need on a regional basis. An environmental assessment was completed in 2009 and, after study of several alternatives, a Roanoke River water treatment plant was selected as the best supply alternative.
After several years of planning, design and preparation, the Martin County Regional Water and Sewer Authority (MCRWASA) Water Treatment Plant construction started on September 30, 2013. The plant began distributing water to its wholesale customers, the Town of Williamston and Martin County (Water Districts I and 2), in March of 2016. The plant has a capacity of treating up to 2 million gallons of water per day.
