Proposed Interlocal Agreement between H2GO and the Town of Leland

3/12/2021 4:01:56 PM

Joint Statement of
Brunswick Regional Water and Sewer H2GO  and
 the Town of Leland
 
In the spirit of cooperation and unity, Brunswick Regional Water and Sewer H2GO and the Town of Leland will consider an agreement to consolidate their utilities to become one service provider and better serve the region.
 
Northern Brunswick County is one of the fastest-growing areas in North Carolina and is expected to experience continued residential and commercial development. As the area grows, it is necessary that the region’s entities work together to effectively and efficiently plan for and address current and future water and wastewater needs.
 
Under the proposed Interlocal Agreement for the Operation and Joint Ownership of Water Distribution and Wastewater Collection Systems, the two entities would consolidate their water and wastewater systems and utility funds in order to gain efficiencies in operations, enhance financial sustainability, reduce redundancies and overlaps, and improve customer service.
 
As the public entity tasked with the provision of water and sewer in the potential agreement, H2GO is well-positioned and well-equipped to operate and maintain the consolidated water and wastewater systems.
 
The proposed agreement specifies areas of the region where both entities would be able to expand their services jointly, and other areas where H2GO could expand separately. By doing so, both entities would be able to grow in a coordinated and unified manner, eliminating uncertainty regarding the provision of utility service. In addition, a consolidated customer base could take advantage of economies of scale as they relate to rates and pricing.
 
A public hearing on the proposed Interlocal Agreement for the Operation and Joint Ownership of Water Distribution and Wastewater Collection Systems will be held during Leland Town Council’s next regular meeting at 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 18 at Leland Town Hall, 102 Town Hall Drive. H2GO will consider the agreement at its next regular meeting at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, March 16.
 
The draft agreement will be available on Wednesday, March 10 for review on the Town of Leland website at www.townofleland.com and H2GO’s website at www.H2GOonline.com.
