Mike here. The City of Wilmington holds those funds; not CFPUA. We have to invest in our infrastructure and by doing so, in just five short years, we've cut SSOs by nearly 40% and their volume by nearly 80%. Facts, not opinions.
And, as the University of North Carolina has shown with their recent study, we've done this while keeping our rates are at or below the state averages for cost when compared to every single water and wastewater utility in the state. You don't have to take my word for it. The facts speak for themselves. I hope you'll go do some research before making your attacks in the future.
