LOUISVILLE TRANSMISSION MAIN PROJECT
Project Description: South Blount County Utility District (SBCUD) announces the design of the Louisville Transmission water main project.The Louisville Transmission water main is perhaps one of the larger water main projects in the history of SBCUD. This 35,000 linear feet project was identified in the 2016 SBCUD Master Plan for 2030. This project replaces assets that are up to 60 years old and will provide the hydraulics needed to move water to the North service area. Upon finalization of the design stage SBCUD will send letters and maps to customers along the proposed route and post updates to the website.
As your water service provider, it is our desire to provide abundant, clean water to the growing residential population of our service area and future generations. As part of our ongoing efforts to meet development trends and future water demands of Blount County, SBCUD must replace aging infrastructure with new infrastructure that will meet those demands for future generations.
