In 2008, Arcadis Engineering was commissioned to prepare a Moyock Sewer Master Plan.  The study would analysis potential service areas, flow projects and cost estimates.

Attached is the proposed sewer service area.  It included full-service areas, limited-service areas and some areas designated as rural which had proposed developments.  The proposed range for service was from the state line to the proposed High Cotton Subdivision.

Total build out estimated flow was 2,542,596 gpd.  Phase I was proposed at 200,000 gpd serving the existing systems plus High Cotton Towne Center and Currituck Station.  Estimated costs were $5.5 million.

The collection system recommended was a vacuum system.  High-rate infiltration was recommended for the disposal system.  Five sites were analysis as seen in the attached figure.

A follow up to the plan was performed based on a 100,000 gpd system.  This would serve the existing systems with reduced flows from the High Cotton Towne Center and Currituck Reserve.  Treatment and disposal were recommended on sites E and H which was the Hayward borrow pits.  Estimated costs were $5.6 million.
