Next Generation Mag Meter Helps Davidson With Non-Revenue WaterSource: McCrometer, Inc.
Davidson Water Inc., located in Lexington, North Carolina, is one of the largest membership cooperatives financed by USDA Rural Development. In 1967, with the goal of creating a safe, dependable water system, citizens in northern Davidson County organized funding with Farmers Home Administration and in 1969 the construction of the county’s first water service facility was completed. Four additional water systems were constructed with North Davidson Water Inc. supplying water, maintenance and management service to each. In 1973 the five systems were consolidated under The Davidson Water Corporation.
At present, Davidson Water has a plant capacity of 20 million gallons per day. To serve the future needs of its customers, an additional 15 mgd plant is currently under construction that will bring the total plant capacity to 35 mgd.
