Why did the Cape Fear Public Utility Authority issue a boil water order and restrictions for New Hanover County, especially for the Ogden area?

Chris Mazzolini

It’s all about protecting the public water supply, said Cape Fear Public Utility Authority CEO Matt Jordan.

Because there are some interconnections between pipes served by the Sweeney water plant and the nano plant in Ogden, they had to issue the boil water advisory for the entire system to make sure the entire supply was safe.

“We use an abundance of caution,” Jordan said. “We are not in the maybe business. We either know it’s safe or we do not.”
