Flushing

UPDATE: The March 2020 Flushing program for the 232 System/Richardson Water Treatment Plant is complete. Water service in the area is back to normal operation as of March 13, 2020. 

March 2020 Flushing – 232 System/Richardson Water Treatment Plant

Starting Monday, March 2, CFPUA will begin an approximately two-week flushing program in Northern New Hanover County. Flushing will be conducted throughout March in areas served by the Richardson Water Treatment Plant ahead of a scheduled filter replacement at the plant.

Water systems in areas including Ogden, Porters Neck, Bayshore, and North College Road will be flushed overnight Monday through Friday to reduce disruptions for customers. Maps of the areas scheduled for flushing will be posted on this page at the beginning of each week. Flushing at each location will last from 9 p.m to 7 p.m., and water will remain safe to drink.

Because of the nature of the process, it is possible that customers may experience periods of low pressure and/or water discoloration while flushing is being conducted in their area. Customers who do experience discoloration are advised to run the cold water for at least one to three minutes to allow the lines to clear.

Areas are roughly described below and do not include every neighborhood or subdivision affected. Click on each SECTION tab below to view the area map. Sections are typically completed in order throughout the week – completion of each section is dependent on system conditions and unfinished areas typically carry over into the following week. The schedule may change with little or no notice.

Follow CFPUA on Facebook and Twitter for updates on the flushing schedule. Customers with questions about the flushing process can call Water Quality Foreman Wagoner Porter at 910-367-8779.
