Water Resources

The City of Kings Mountain Water Supply is Moss Lake. Moss Lake is a 15,000,000,000 gallon impoundment located 7 miles west of Kings Mountain on Oak Grove Rd.

 Our water is treated at the T. J. Ellison Water Treatment Plant located at Moss Lake. The Water Plant is undergoing a major upgrade that is scheduled to be completed in December of 2016. This upgrade includes increasing the capacity from 8 million gallons to 12 million gallons per day.

We have just completed the installation of a 36” water main that will replace a 24” water main that was put into service in 1972.
