CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 30 /PRNewswire/ — Remodel Auction, Inc., a leader in next-generation home improvement pricing technology, announced today it acquired an option to purchase over 375 acres of land surrounding the planned John Cline Reservoir to be built North of Shelby, NC in Upper Cleveland County.
Cleveland County, located just one hour west of Charlotte, NC, has recently approved the impoundment of the First Broad River by the construction of a dam in Lawndale, NC. Much of the large tract of land to be owned by Remodel Auction is expected to be water front with a mountain view across the lake.
According to the Cleveland County Sanitary District, historical data shows there has been more than 300 million gallons in one day go down the First Broad River during a flood. The normal daily flow is 34 million to 35 million gallons. In drought conditions the daily flow goes down below 8 1/2 million gallons forcing Cleveland County sometimes in the past to take emergency measures including purchasing water from Kings Mountain. Construction of the reservoir for Cleveland County to have a more dependable water supply is a must according to many local residents.
The Cleveland County Sanitary District is working with John Boaze, Senior Biologist with Fish and Wildlife Associates, who stated, “We are assisting the Sanitary District with permitting requirements by laying out alternatives which include: 1. No action, 2. Build Lake Cline on the First Broad River, 3. Build a smaller reservoir on Knob Creek, or 4. Build a smaller reservoir on Crooked Creek.” According to Boaze, “The Army Corps of Engineers plays a role in this process.” Butch Smith, Cleveland County Sanitary District General Manager stated, “Our preferred dam site is on the First Broad River near the Water Plant in Lawndale, NC.”
Remodel Auction’s Executive Vice President Chip Kimel stated, “In furtherance of our business plan, we intend to invest in properties that we expect to appreciate. We are excited to be in a position to participate in the growth taking place in Cleveland County resulting from the Sanitary District’s plan to build Lake Cline.” stated Kimel.
