The City of Raleigh and the Town of Garner operate independent water and sewer utilities in Wake County, North Carolina. All of Garner's water is obtained by contract from the City of Raleigh. Part of Garner's wastewater is treated at its spray application facility, and the remaining flows are conveyed to Raleigh for treatment. In 1998, following a recommendation that eastern Wake County's water and sewer utilities be consolidated into a single entity, to be operated by Raleigh, Garner began discussions on a utility merger with Raleigh.
