WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — CFPUA anticipates storm-related impacts to our water utility.

Heavy rains, flooding, high winds, and coastal storm surge can lead to periods of service outages and low pressure. These are possible scenarios that CFPUA staff are preparing for include pipe breaks related to up-rooted trees or sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs) due to flooding.
