When will Ruth Avenue residences in Ogden be connected to water and sewer?

Ashley Withers

Q. It seems that the businesses and residences near Ruth Avenue in the Ogden area are connected to the water system, whereas the residences on Ruth Avenue all have private wells. When will these residences be connected to the water system?

A. There is no project planned to connect Ruth Avenue to the water system at this time, but a future Cape Fear Public Utility Authority waterline might bring the potential for service to the area.

CFPUA is in the process of designing a new large waterline on Market Street near Military Cutoff Road that will connect the authority’s central water system served by the Sweeney Water Treatment Plant to the nano water treatment plant, according to authority spokesman Mike McGill.

The path of the waterline is dependent on decisions by the N.C. Department of Transportation and there is a possibility the waterline may run down Ruth Avenue.

“While the waterline is not intended to serve Ruth Avenue, if the routing leads the line down Ruth Avenue, service might be available,” McGill said. “If this larger line is not routed down Ruth Avenue, its nearby location will still place Ruth Avenue in a better position to be served in future years should funds become available.”


What are CFPUA’s plans for getting water and sewer to parts of unincorporated New Hanover County?

What is that large pipe along Burnt Mill Creek between Market Street and Princess Place Drive?
