Utilities

Gaston County has several utility systems serving the area. Most of the electrical, water and sewer capacity was designed to serve the textile industry. Over the years, a decrease in demand from the textile industry has resulted in a significant surplus of water and sewer capacity for most industrial properties. Natural gas is readily available in most locations.

Telecommunication services are provided by major national and regional carriers in both fiber and wireless formats. In August of 2015, AT&T announced that select portions of Gaston County will be available to receive their GigaPower service with internet up to 1Gbps on a 100% fiber-optic network.

Several of the local towns contract with waste haulers to provide service for their communities - Cramerton has Waste Management and Belmont has someone else. Sometimes the County’s landfill is the final destination and others have their own landfill.
