Replacement of the water main along Pine Ridge Drive.
Posted on Monday June 11, 2018

Carolina Water Service, Inc. (CWS) is preparing to begin the replacement of the water main along a significant portion (approximately 9500 feet) of Pine Ridge Drive.  This critical infrastructure improvement will replace an old and undersize (4”) water main with a new 6” water main.  In addition to improving the overall water distribution system, the project will add new fire hydrants, which will significantly improve the Fire Rescue Departments water supply capabilities for fighting fires and potentially reduce your homeowner’s insurance premium.   

Construction is anticipated to begin on Monday, June 18, 2018.  The project is estimated to be complete by the end of Summer.  Construction hours will be between the 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday, weather permitting.  

During construction hours, traffic will be limited to a single lane; therefore, please be cautious, reduce your speed in the area, and if possible, avoid using Pine Ridge Drive.  The roadway will return to normal operations at the end of each day.

The specific location of the new water main installation will be primarily on the even side of Pine Ridge Drive between 114 and 244.  The residents of any property that will have their driveway directly impacted will receive a subsequent notification approximately 2-3 days in advance.  Every effort will be made to avoid any utility service interruptions; however, if a utility service is interrupted, CWS will be on site to coordinate with the appropriate utility immediately.        

A map of the project area and a frequently asked questions list are available on the Village website ( on Resident page).  You can also call Village Hall at 910-949-3141 for additional information or concerns.
