CFPUA http://whqr.org en New Water Pipeline Will Connect Flemington to Wilmington's Drinking Water Supply http://whqr.org/post/new-water-pipeline-will-connect-flemington-wilmingtons-drinking-water-supply <p>Residents of Flemington, a small community located off of U.S. 421, will soon be connected to New Hanover County’s main water system. Officials from Cape Fear Public Utility Authority, or CFPUA, say they'll&nbsp;construct a new connective water pipeline this year. This is because groundwater containing coal ash slurry from Duke Progress Energy’s Sutton Plant has been slowly seeping toward Flemington’s current drinking wells. The CFPUA held a public meeting to discuss the pipeline Tuesday night, but fewer than five private citizens attended—and none made public comments.</p> Wed, 05 Feb 2014 18:58:33 +0000 Katie O'Reilly 50040 at http://whqr.org New Water Pipeline Will Connect Flemington to Wilmington's Drinking Water Supply With a Severe Cold Snap on the Way, CFPUA Offers Tips to Prevent Water Pipes from Freezing http://whqr.org/post/severe-cold-snap-way-cfpua-offers-tips-prevent-water-pipes-freezing <p>With temperatures predicted to be well below freezing for several days in the region, water pipes in area homes have a greater chance of freezing and possibly bursting. &nbsp;</p><p><a href="http://www.cfpua.org/">The Cape Fear Public Utility Authority</a> is offering a few reminders that could prevent the record-breaking cold from becoming an expensive ordeal.</p><p><strong><em>From <a href="http://www.cfpua.org/">CFPUA</a>:&nbsp; </em></strong></p><p><strong><em>Preventive measures:</em></strong></p> Mon, 06 Jan 2014 15:34:23 +0000 Rachel Lewis Hilburn 48565 at http://whqr.org With a Severe Cold Snap on the Way, CFPUA Offers Tips to Prevent Water Pipes from Freezing CFPUA Board Unanimously Approves Cost-sharing Deal with Duke for Flemington Water Line http://whqr.org/post/cfpua-board-unanimously-approves-cost-sharing-deal-duke-flemington-water-line <p>The Cape Fear Public Utility Authority and Duke / Progress Energy will collaborate to construct a water line for a small, largely low-income community on the outskirts of New Hanover County.&nbsp;</p><p> Wed, 09 Oct 2013 21:17:25 +0000 Rachel Lewis Hilburn 44369 at http://whqr.org CFPUA Board Unanimously Approves Cost-sharing Deal with Duke for Flemington Water Line Candidate Profile: Charlie Rivenbark, Wilmington City Council http://whqr.org/post/candidate-profile-charlie-rivenbark-wilmington-city-council <p></p><p></p><p style="line-height:150%"><span style="font-size:14pt;line-height:150%;font-family:Verdana">Charlie Rivenbark is running for a fourth term on the Wilmington City Council.<span>&nbsp; </span></span> Sun, 06 Oct 2013 14:07:21 +0000 Rachel Lewis Hilburn 44197 at http://whqr.org Candidate Profile: Charlie Rivenbark, Wilmington City Council UPDATE: Boil Water Advisory for Parts of Market Street Lifted http://whqr.org/post/update-boil-water-advisory-parts-market-street-lifted <p><em><strong>Officials at the CFPUA say the Precautionary Boil Water Advisory is lifted as of the morning of Friday, August 23rd.&nbsp; </strong></em></p><p></p><p>The Cape Fear Public Utility Authority (CFPUA) will issue a precautionary boil water advisory for customers living and working on the <strong>1800 and 1900 blocks of Market Street</strong>.&nbsp; CFPUA will be installing system improvements in the area between <span data-term="goog_2030161152" tabindex="0">9 AM and 3 PM</span>, requiring water service to be affected those blocks of Market Street.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p><p></p> Fri, 23 Aug 2013 13:50:00 +0000 Rachel Lewis Hilburn 41871 at http://whqr.org UPDATE: Boil Water Advisory for Parts of Market Street Lifted CEO of CFPUA accepts job in Florida http://whqr.org/post/ceo-cfpua-accepts-job-florida <p></p><h2>The Chief Executive Officer of the Cape Fear Public Utility Authority could soon be leaving his post.&nbsp; Matthew Jordan has accepted a position in Tampa Bay, Florida.&nbsp;</h2><p></p><p> Tue, 21 May 2013 20:41:56 +0000 Rachel Lewis Hilburn 36802 at http://whqr.org CEO of CFPUA accepts job in Florida
