A North Carolina county has broken ground on a nearly $19 million reverse osmosis plant that is expected to start pumping fresh water late next year.
The Daily Advance of Elizabeth City reported Tuesday that the plant in Pasquotank County in northeastern North Carolina will provide water to the county and in neighboring Elizabeth City and Perquimans County.
The plant will start pumping about one-million-gallons-per-day, but can be expanded to five-million-gallons-per-day later.
