💧💧 Filter replacement 💧💧 This week, crews are cleaning out and replacing media in the Sweeney Water Treatment Plant’s existing granular activated carbon (GAC) filters. CFPUA has been doing this since 2018 as an interim measure to reduce #PFAS like #GenX while we wait for construction to finish on new, deep-bed GAC filters at the plant.

Crews will wrap up this interim filter replacement next week, while the new deep-bed filters will come online in 2022. Read all about the larger filter project at www.CFPUA.org/Sweeney 💧

We may not get much winter weather in Wilmington, but it’s always a good idea to make sure your home, including plumbing, is prepared:

💧Properly insulate outdoor pipes
💧Make sure your backflow preventer has a cover
💧Drain irrigation systems before a hard freeze

Check out more tips below 👇

Although temps are in the 70's right now, this is the time of year to think about winter preparedness. This week is #WinterWeather Preparedness Week in NC. Each day, we will share tips and information from our partners with US National Weather Service Wilmington NC on how to be #ReadyNHC and ready for whatever winter brings us! New Hanover County Government, NC

As winter approaches, there are steps you can take to prepare your home for the cold weather ahead. Learn more at weather.gov/safety/winter

We’ve got to talk about wipes, Wilmy 🚽 See that big gross mass around the edges of this sewer wet well? That’s so-called “flushable” wipes, combined with grease and oil that’s been poured down the drain 🤢

Toilet paper is the only product designed to break down in a sewer system. When anything else is flushed — wipes, paper towels, sanitary products — it can combine with fats in the sewer system to make these nasty #fatbergs. If the blockage gets bad enough, it can lead to sewer overflows and expensive wear and tear on infrastructure.

Help our hardworking Collections crews protect our community’s wastewater system:
💧Never flush products other than toilet paper
💧Keep fats, oils, and grease out of your kitchen sink
💧Report sewer emergencies by calling 910-332-6565

EPA Science Advisory Board to review health effects of PFAS

We talk a lot about #GenX, but that's just one of the more than 50 #PFAS compounds CFPUA regularly tests for in water 👩‍🔬💧

Check out WECT News's story on the EPA's study of PFOS and PFOA, which CFPUA's filters are already effectively treating. Once new Granular Activated Carbon filters come online in 2022, those numbers will be reduced even further.

The agency says the board will review new documents that study the health impacts of PFOA and PFOS, the legacy compounds replaced by GenX.

Is there boil water advisory for NH C ?
I would love it if the lids on her cans would be closed every single time after they've been dumped. Especially on rainy days. I don't know why this continues to happen but it's happened enough that I've decided to write you a comment about it
Would you like to see my online account status that shows "Shutoff/Non-Pay"... and "Amount Past Due: $0.00"...???? Complete and total incompetence, at best. Leaning more towards criminal.
Has to be one of the poorest run, most mis-managed Utility companies I have ever encountered.
Is there a water outage in Monkey Junction
