Sam's Branch Water Reclamation Facility

Project Update

The Town of Clayton continues to make progress in the effort to build a new water reclamation facility along the Neuse River. This is the largest project in the Town's history and includes construction of a facility capable of treating 6 million gallons of water per day (MGD). The facility will be built on a Town-owned site near the Neuse River at 1422 N O'Neil Street. The site is already home to other wastewater infrastructure and greenways.

The Town Council in late June voted to award the design-build portion of the project to Gannett-Fleming, a leader in infrastructure planning, design, technology, and construction management services. They also awarded the early grading, access road and water line phases of the project to Providence Construction.


The Town's existing wastewater treatment plant is 55 years old and is nearing the end of its usefulness. The current site is too small for major enhancement or expansion and the facility will not be able to keep up with the demands of the growth in the region. The new plant will be better for the environment, equipped with more modern processes and equipment, and sized to meet the needs of our local businesses and growing community.
