Q. Does the county own the Kings Grant water tower? If so, why don’t they do anything about its appearance? It is a rusty eyesore!
A. The fate of Kings Grant water tower has been in limbo since the Cape Fear Public Utility Authority was created in 2007.
As of April 2013, the water tower is still in the name of the New Hanover County Water and Sewer District and has to be transferred to the Authority, according to CFPUA spokesman Mike McGill.
“This is a relative formality and the process to the transfer the tower to CFPUA is taking place,” McGill said.
He said CFPUA has already been working to prepare a bid document to demolish the tower with the goal of having it removed by next spring.
