Hickory, North Carolina: $5.41 Million


The City of Hickory’s Northeast Wastewater Treatment Facility and influent pump station serve around 26,000 customers. Flooding of the pump station could result in contaminates and hazard materials entering the water supply.

Project Description

This project will construct a berm around the pump station and installs natural and environmentally sensitive stream restoration and bank stabilization measures along approximately 2,000 feet of Falling Creek. This nature-based approach will achieve greater stability within the stream’s banks and reduces the severity of erosion and encroachment from flood events.
