The Cape Fear Public Utility Authority has partnered with area churches and the City of Wilmington to organize a program that will provide groundwater from CFPUA’s Richardson Nanofiltration plant to citizens unable to get to the free water station at Ogden Park.
While the most recent sampling results from CFPUA indicate that levels of GenX are below the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services health goal of 140 parts per trillion, citizens who prefer an alternative water source may take part in this program.
Beginning Monday, July 31, churches will transport empty containers to Ogden Park where they will be filled with treated groundwater at no cost. Church volunteers will then bring the filled containers back to the designated churches, where customers can pick them up. Churches will be open for drop off between 9:00 am and 11:00 am every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and for pick up between 1:00 pm and 3:00 p.m. on the same days.
Three churches in the greater downtown area will be offering drop-off and pick-up services:
