In January, the Cape Fear Public Utility Authority announced Phase Two of its Water Meter Replacement program. Contractors from Pedal Valves Inc. will install the new meters at zero cost to CFPUA customers.
Chief communications officer Mike McGill said the movement of a few well meters (or “bladder tanks”) is not tied to the meter replacement program. Instead, it is an independent effort that will be done by CFPUA staff. The meters are being moved because the staff wants to prevent safety hazards and liabilities.
McGill said these customers are not required to have the meter moved. However, by choosing not to move the meters, customers would not get the benefit of metered sewer, resulting in a flat sewer rate.
