USGS Report Details Development of Town of Cary Supplemental Groundwater Supply System

Record #:
The Town of Cary, North Carolina has developed a groundwater system which can provide the town supplemental water on a cost-effective basis. Development of the system was based on site selection criteria by the United States Geological Survey, and supports the contention that wells in the Piedmont can yield much larger quantities of water than previously thought. According to a recent report, the groundwater system was needed because of anticipated increases in the cost of purchasing water and surcharges for additional water from the City of Raleigh.
