CFPUA reports 2,400-gallon sewage spill


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The Cape Fear Public Utility Authority says crews responded to and repaired a spill from the sanitary sewer system yesterday. Approximately 2,400 gallons was discharged, which flowed directly into the City of Wilmington Storm Drain system and then into the Cape Fear River.

CFPUA says the incident was reported at 9:40 a.m. The spill was stopped at 11:40 a.m.

The spill occurred from a cleanout in the roadway in the 400 block of Harnett St. The spill was caused by a failure of a water line located in the wall of a sanitary sewer manhole located in the intersection of 4th and Harnett.

Routing the water line around the manhole has permanently repaired of the condition.

I guess that means the bill

I guess that means the bill is going up again and they are going to give the head loser another raise.

and the poor employees that

and the poor employees that do all the hard work has to deal with the crap from the public. They get the raw end of the deal... low pay and high crap.

Now for the topping of the cake: they just hired Brian Berger; if he cant handle the city council then how in the heck can he do this!

Another crap paper pusher with high pay that dont know crap about working in crap.. just knows how to shovel it by mouth and paper pushing.

The real people behind the job... on the job get little thank you for keeping the public waters systems working while the upper pay people get all the money and no crap on their shirt.

Congratulations CFPUA
