Since 2014, Chatham County, the City of Durham, and the Town of Pittsboro have explored ways to meet their long-term water supply needs. OWASA joined the WIP in 2022. The Triangle region is growing, and Jordan Lake is a vital part of the region’s water supply portfolio. The Partnership is implementing a plan to withdraw water from Jordan Lake. The water will then be treated and delivered to our water systems. To learn more about these projects, click on the link below.
