The Triangle region is growing. To support this growth, the WIP aims to secure a long-term water supply for the area. The plan involves withdrawing and treating water from Jordan Lake. That water would then be delivered to our communities’ water systems.
Jordan Lake is a reservoir west of Raleigh and south of Durham in Chatham County. It supplies water to surrounding communities. The lake is a popular place for recreation, and it helps conserve fish and wildlife habitats. Jordan Lake also controls flooding and water quality. All this makes the lake a vital regional resource.
This project will provide access to the lake’s water supply while protecting its other uses – all to benefit our communities.
