Why won’t the CFPUA extend water service to Bald Eagle Lane?

Shelby Sebens

The Cape Fear Public Utility Authority will consider extending service to Bald Eagle Lane during the budget process in the spring, spokeswoman Carey Ricks said. The cost of the project is an estimated $1.3 million. “The authority recognizes that this is an area mostly served by private wells vulnerable to salt water intrusion. The project will be considered with other much needed projects and with consideration of limited funding available,” Ricks stated in an e-mail.

    I sincerely hope that CFPUA does not extend water to Bald Eagle Lane at the price tag of $1.3mm. Those home-owners who have chosen to build or buy on the intercoastal waterway knew (or should have known) the risks of living that close to the ocean. Why would everyone else in the county have to pay for their mistake? To allot money to this foolish project would be subsidizing the few at the expense of the many, and no doubt raise the property values along Bald Eagle Lane, while those that pay for it get nothing in return. If the owners affected by this want to pony-up the entire $1.3mm, then of course, the public at large should be indifferent.
