Welcome Back to the Cape Fear Rundown. This week, Ben attended a follow-up meeting for the Rock Hill community's efforts to connect to CFPUA lines, and then, in a very silly segment, we say goodbye to our Summer News Intern James Watson as he goes back to college.

Correction: Just after the eight-minute mark, Ben and Cami are discussing costs. Ben incorrectly says that homeowners would still have to pay some connection cost. CFPUA clarified that the $500,000 from New Hanover County would cover 'both sides of the meter' — that is, both connecting the neighborhood and attaching individual houses to the water and sewer system.

Show Notes:
