Fayetteville Public Works Commission


Utilities + Environmental Energy Water


The Fayetteville Public Works Commission was created on March 4, 1905, through an act of the North Carolina Legislature to manage, operate and supervise the electric, water, and wastewater utilities in the City of Fayetteville. That legislation was incorporated into the Charter of the City of Fayetteville and has had several legislative modifications throughout the years.

On June 29, 2016, the North Carolina Legislature repealed the portion of the City of Fayetteville Charter that specifically and exclusively dealt with PWC and replaced it with an updated version that more clearly defined the roles and responsibilities of the Commission and the City of Fayetteville in the operation of the electric, water, and wastewater utilities. Most notably, the Legislature defined PWC as a Public Authority under North Carolina law and is subject to the applicable state statutes that govern Public Authorities.
