North Carolina has awarded $282 million for infrastructure projects statewide.

Governor Roy Cooper announced that the loans and grants will go toward drinking water and wastewater projects.

Cooper released a statement saying the funding will help counties and towns “deliver clean, safe water to attract new jobs and keep people healthy.”

Among projects in the Triad, Winston-Salem will receive $20 million toward the modernization of its water treatment plant.

About $21 million has been awarded to Davie County to expand the Cooleemee Water Treatment Plant, allowing for a plant closure in Mocksville.

Reidsville will receive almost $5 million for work on city water supply lines.

A total of 94 projects statewide were approved at the State Water Authority's February 10th meeting.
