Cabarrus Co. aquarium receives first few thousand gallons of water

A massive new aquarium in Cabarrus County just received its first few thousand gallons of water.

The New Sea Life Charlotte-Concord Aquarium at Concord Mills had its groundbreaking in September.

Firefighters started pouring water into the 117,000-gallon, 12-foot deep ocean tank on Friday. Filling all the tanks will require 150,000 gallons.

The aquarium is still on track to open early next year.
