The Northern Cumberland Regional Sewer System (NORCRESS) District was created as a partnership between the three towns of Wade, Godwin and Falcon, as well as Cumberland County, in effect creating a regional wastewater collection system. These communities are located in the Northeast quadrant of Cumberland County. All three towns are east of the Cape Fear River and located in close proximity to Interstate I-95. The system went online October 2005.
Property owners will be responsible for the monthly sewer charge per the approved rate schedule (below) for each property owned if the property is connected to the sewer system or a monthly availability fee per the approved rate schedule for each property owned if the property is not connected to the sewer system as stated in the County Water & Sewer Ordinance. This amount is subject to change and is charged to all property owners whose property has access to the County’s sewer line to cover the cost of operation and maintenance of the sewer system.
