Catawba-Wateree Water Management Group Unveils Master Plan for the Region

CHARLOTTE, N.C.,May 13, 2014 - The Catawba-Wateree Water Management Group (CWWMG) has worked with stakeholders for more than four years to design a basin-wide water supply master plan that can help ensure our water supply will fully support the growing needs of the region into the next century.
