Abstract:Charlotte Mecklenburg Utilities has grown from a city-county utility in 1972 to a large, regional utility that today serves retail customers in Charlotte, six other towns in Mecklenburg County, and parts of three other counties, has wholesale treatment agreements that cross both county and state lines, and is working toward joint ownership of a new wastewater plant with an existing Authority and a neighboring county.
This paper discusses the incentives and obstacles that Charlotte Mecklenburg Utilities has experienced in becoming a large regional utility.
