The information is not accurate, Cape Fear Public Utility Authority spokeswoman Carey Disney Ricks said.
CFPUA owns and operates a nano filtration water treatment plant in the Ogden area that was designed “and the construction initiated by New Hanover County,” Ricks said.
The CFPUA Utility Services Division currently uses an attached portion of the building, and CFPUA’s new Environmental Management and Safety Division/lab facility is located across the street, she said.
“The EMSD facility was constructed on this property as a matter of operational and cost efficiency. When the Sweeney Water Treatment Facility that historically housed lab services was being redesigned by Wilmington, the new building design did not include space for lab services,” Ricks said.
CFPUA chose to use land in Ogden conveyed during consolidation to build the facility, she added.
In terms of a headquarters building, CFPUA leases space at 235 Government Center Drive, Wilmington [Map this], “that was determined to best serve the space and use needs of the Authority Administration, Customer Service, Collections, Information Technology, Engineering, Finance, Public Relations, Operations, and Human Resources Departments,” Ricks said.
