Water / Sewer
Gastonia has served as a regional provider of wholesale water and wastewater services to surrounding municipalities for more than two decades. In 2011, the merger of Gastonia's and the Town of Cramerton's water and wastewater systems initiated the formation of a formal regional utility, named Two Rivers Utilities.
Two Rivers Utilities provides water and wastewater services to residents of Gastonia, Bessemer City, Cramerton, Kings Mountain, Lowell, McAdenville, Ranlo and Clover, S.C. The water treatment facility processes about 5 billion gallons of water per year. There are three wastewater treatment facilities – Long Creek, Crowders Creek, and Eagle Rd. All of TRU facilities have received the designation as an Environmental Steward from the state of North Carolina.
