Alternative 7: Interconnection with Charlotte Water (IBT from Catawba River Basin to the Rocky River Sub-Basin of the Yadkin River Basin).

Alternative 7:
Catawba River to Union County (via Charlotte Water's Mountain Island Lake Withdrawal)

Water Supply

Alternative 7 represents an IBT from one major river basin to another (as opposed to a sub-basin IBT as is the case for the Preferred Alternative).


Alternative 7 is more costly than Preferred Alternative/cost prohibitive.

Lake Impacts



Alternative 7 has more significant environmental consequences for other interests in the Catawba River Basin.


Alternative 7 would likley not be acceptable from a politcal/community perspective.
