CFPUA holds meeting about new water filtration system

Northern New Hanover County residents may be able to say goodbye to water softeners. A new water treatment facility will service the northern part of the county that has dealt with hard water for years. The plant features a new treatment method with an odd name, nano filtration. The process uses tiny filters that produce higher quality water water that is ready to drink. "We will improve the overall water quality and we will also save the customers money because they will no longer need to operate their home softeners," said Michael Richardson Drinking Water Superintendent at CFPUA. Residents can expect to see a change in their water quality when the new plant comes on line next month. For more details on the plan, residents are encouraged to attend an information session Thursday evening at Ogden Elementary School from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Officials from the Cape Fear Public Utility Authority will be on hand to answer questions.
