KRG Utility Completes Static Pipe Bursting Project In Wilmington, N.C.

In 2007, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) issued a Special Order of Consent (SOC) with the state of North Carolina regarding a series of sanitary sewer overflows that occurred in the city of Wilmington. That SOC led to several challenging pipe bursting projects facilitated by trenchless contractorKRG Utility Inc., Lenoir, N.C.

Since that time, the management of the wastewater treatment systems in the City of Wilmington and New Hanover County has been taken over by the Cape Fear Public Utility Authority (CFPUA). The CFPUA, now responsible for those sewer systems, entered into a consent decree with the U.S. EPA in 2013, resolving the claims by the EPA regarding overflows in the City of Wilmington and New Hanover County’s systems.
