Water shut down for some local residents Tuesday

Tomorrow, the Cape Fear Public Utility Authority will shut down water for all residents west of 1-40, to include Shearin Hills subdivisions and Blossom Ferry Road. Water will not be available between 10:00 p.m. and 4:00 a.m. Contractors are shutting it off to perform required maintenance on the pipes. When water service resumes, customers in the affected area could experience some water discoloration. Flushing your pipes for five to ten minutes is recommended if that happens.

I receive sewer services since I have a well don't have to worry about a water bill but still haven't received a bill since last May & none of my neighbors have either. We got the famous letter stating that we would receive our bills by the end of October but it's been a no show as of yesterday's mail. Here it is coming up to Thanksgiving next week then before you know Xmas then 2009. Our bills are going to be outrageous. Even though I've saved it's getting harder with because my property taxes, homeowner's & health insurance, along with my copay by $15 ea. visit, have gone up leaving me with less paycheck each month & work 2 jobs. So will they take monthly payments over the next year so some of us can still eat & drive to work?

water bills

What's the latest on the CFPUA water service bills. There is currently an outrage over the increased bi-monthly amounts, especially to senior citizens and fixed income people. When are any new bills coming out???

delayed water bills

if the cape fear water authority was not prepared to handle the changeover, then why were they able to take over this service? Technically, the authority should have to write off two months of bills because of their inability to be honest with the public!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
