Cape Fear Public Utility Authority customers are likely in for another rate increase next budget year.

The authority board finance committee held a special meeting Thursday morning to discuss options for the increase, which CFPUA staff members said will help cover “variable expenditures” such as electricity.

The authority board moved to a uniform rate structure in May. Under this structure, the cost per thousand gallons is $3.42 for water and $4.21 for sewer for both residential and non-residential customers. CFPUA officials said this was the actual cost of the water and wastewater.

Thank God for well water! They raise their rates more than the insurance companies. Pretty soon at the rate they are going you will be able to buy an oz. of gold cheaper than an oz. of their water.
