The City of Salisbury has reached an agreement with Cube Yadkin Generation to fund a portion of the $31.5 million project to relocate the City’s raw water pump station at the Yadkin River. The pump station is critical to the City’s water supply infrastructure and provides drinking water for more than 52,000 Salisbury-Rowan Utilities’ customers. Once complete, this infrastructure project will protect the City’s pump station from the effect of worsening flooding at the current location.
The Salisbury Police Department continues to investigate an incident that occurred on the Catawba College campus, Sunday, February 12, just before 3 a.m.
Salisbury-Rowan Utilities customers who receive utility bills through U.S. Mail will receive a second, corrected bill for January after a billing error sent a duplicate of December’s bill this month. Penalties will be waived for all customers for the month of January.

The Salisbury Police Department (SPD) has been awarded an additional $25,000 grant from the Duke Energy Foundation as part of its $1 million pledge to social justice and racial equity in North Carolina.
