The Water & Sewer Department has ongoing capital projects to upgrade the utility systems as the City of Fayetteville grows. The projects are identified in the Master Plan and the priority is determined so they can be budgeted for accordingly. In-house design is used whenever possible to save taxpayer money on consulting costs. For smaller projects, in-house construction is used to avoid overspending with construction contractors. The Water & Sewer Department continually identifies and completes necessary improvements to help maintain water quality and environmental quality for the citizens of Fayetteville.
