CFPUA: We cannot rely on Chemours to control discharges from its site.
On two occasions during the past month, Chemours has spilled wastewater it believed contained GenX at its Fayetteville Works plant, according to letters from the company to environmental regulators.
The funding timeline is in jeopardy if the State Senate does not vote on the bill. The Senate leaders says he does not plan to bring it up.
The state has ordered Chemours to provide bottled water to 30 more well owners near the company’s Fayetteville Works facility after the latest results from the company’s expanded private well sampling showed concentrations of GenX above the state’s provisional health goal.
The state is holding its third community information session to answer questions about drinking water well results from the sampling conducted near Chemours' Fayetteville Works facility in Bladen County.
Preliminary water quality data shows another spike in the levels of GenX in Chemours' wastewater discharge, according to the NC Department of Environmental Quality.
A day after the state announced plans to revoke Chemours' permit to discharge process wastewater from its Fayetteville Works plant, the company says it disagrees with the move.
The state has cited Chemours for failing to report an October 6 spill at its Fayetteville Works facility.
An unreported spill at Chemours led to levels of GenX peaking at 3,700 parts per trillion, a far cry from the 140 parts per trillion established health standard.
