City of Eden Water and Wastewater Services for the Berry Hill Industrial Park
Business Meeting: 06/16/2020
The Berry Hill Industrial Park has been designed to serve up to 7 million gallons per day (MGD) of water supply and 3 MGD of wastewater capacity. The City of Danville is well suited to assume the role as the sole water and wastewater provider within the industrial park from the Pittsylvania County Service Authority. Out of the possible 7 MGD of water supply, the City of Eden has designed a water system to the Virginia/North Carolina border to supply the City of Danville with up to 6 MGD. The City of Eden is also in position to accept all wastewater originating from the Berry Hill Industrial Park. The water and wastewater rates will be determined annually based on the City of Eden's audited cost to provide service to the VA/NC border. The City of Danville will fund and construct water system expansions within the park to serve future tenants. The Danville Utility Commission approved this plan for Eden to provide water and wastewater services to the Berry Hill Industrial Park at their March 23, 2020 meeting.
The Berry Hill Industrial Park is an economic development partnership between the City of Danville and Pittsylvania County. Approximately ten years ago, Dewberry was tasked to determine the most economical source of water supply and wastewater capacity to serve the industrial park. The study determined that the City of Eden has ample water supply and wastewater treatment capacity to be able to serve the Berry Hill Industrial Park with wholesale water and wastewater services. The Pittsylvania County Service Authority has recently decided to propose allowing the City of Danville to serve tenants within the park with water and wastewater services.
Staff recommends that City Council authorize the City Manager to enter into a 20-year agreement with the City of Eden, North Carolina for water and wastewater services for Berry Hill Industrial Park.
