Cape Fear Public Utility Authority and New Hanover County officials welcome the public to attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the U.S. 421 Water and Wastewater Utilities Expansion Project.
WHEN: Tuesday, December 10 at 10:30 a.m.
WHERE: CFPUA Pump Station 3, adjacent to NHC Environmental Management at 3002 U.S. 421.
This $15.5 million project, which included a $1.6 million contribution from New Hanover County for fire suppression services, extends water and sewer services to nearly 1,000 developable acres along the U.S. 421 corridor from the Isabel Holmes Bridge to the Pender County line. Construction involved boring under the Cape Fear River from Wilmington to Eagles Island and installing 35,000 feet of water main and 37,000 feet of sewer main.
This corridor is among the last portions of New Hanover County considered suitable for industrial development, and water and sewer services are essential to that growth.
