The North Carolina Water/Wastewater Bond is required by the North Carolina Utilities Commission, for all those who would like to franchise a water or sewer utility company. No franchise may be granted to any sewer or utility company until the applicant has furnished a bond.
The bond shall be conditioned upon providing adequate and sufficient service within all the applicant’s service areas. Including those for which franchises have previously been granted.
The Water/Wastewater bond amount will vary. Public Staff will recommend an amount, not less than $10,000. The bond must be secured with sufficient surety as approved by the Commission.
Along with the North Carolina Water/Wastewater Bond, applicants must also submit an Original Copy of Power of Attorney. Likewise, an Original Copy of Commitment Letter must be submitted. A completed Application for Transfer of Public Utility Franchise is required.
