WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — If you’re struggling to pay your water bill in Wilmington and New Hanover County, the Cape Fear Public Utility Authority may be able to help.

The utility has teamed up with the United Way and the Salvation Army to help people in the community who are experiencing financial difficulties. The CFPUA Assist program will take donations from the community to help pay water bills for customers who may not be able to make payments.

CFPUA spokeswoman Carey Ricks says this is a great way to pay it forward.

“CFPUA employees actually have contributed over $3,000 to the program just from their personal accounts,” she said. “So we hope to see some success in the community and get this thing started and provide some assistance with some customers’ needs.”
