Improved Water Service
About the Project
IMPROVING CHARLOTTE HARBOR’S WATER DISTRIBUTION
The Charlotte Harbor Water Association (CHWA) Distribution System Improvements Project is a public utility project that will replace over 18 miles of old and undersized water mains, install new fire hydrants, isolation valves and water service connections. This will improve water quality, service reliability and increase fire protection in the communities of Harbour Heights and Port Charlotte that surround the Peace River and Charlotte Harbor. It is the largest project of its type conducted by a non-profit utility organization and one of only three in the nation to receive funding from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to improve rural infrastructure.
