Dear Property Owner:

In July of 2014, the Cape Fear Public Utility Authority (CFPUA) wrote to inform you that, according to our records, water service and/or sewer service are available to serve your property. As a result, CFPUA wrote we would move forward with the mandatory connection of water and/or sewer services under Ordinance 1.13 of the CAPE FEAR PUBLIC UTILITY AUTHORITY UTILITY REGULATIONS AND ORDINANCE.

You were also invited to a public information meeting at Eaton Elementary in July of 2014 so we could discuss the mandatory connection process with you in detail and address issues of concern. After reviewing the feedback from the meeting, CFPUA decided to extend the window of time before the 180-day mandatory connection process would begin by six months, until February of 2015, allowing a total of 12 months to prepare for connection.

With the Mandatory Connection process slated to begin in February, CFPUA would like to invite you to a public information meeting to again discuss the Mandatory Connection process in detail. It will be held at Eaton Elementary School, on Tuesday, January 27, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. We hope you will be able to attend.

During the meeting, CFPUA staff will explain the concept of mandatory connection and the process that is involved to connect to our water system, including costs, the timelines for compliance, and financing options that are available to assist you. Following this meeting, there will be additional communications from CFPUA regarding the requirements and the process for connection to our water and/or sewer services.

Thank you for your consideration. We look forward to meeting with you on January 27th. If you are not able to attend and wish to ask questions, you may send them to me at CFPUA, 235 Government Center Drive, Wilmington, NC 28403, or via email You can also contact me at 332-6704.

After the July meeting, CFPUA created a web page with information dedicated to your group’s mandatory connection process. Your group is called Area 1 and your page is available on our homepage – – under Quick Links.
