The N.C. Department of Environmental Quality has issued a notice of violation to Chemours Fayetteville Works ordering the company to immediately take new measures to control additional sources of GenX.
The owner of a Jones County pig farm was fined more than $60,000 after he discharged nearly one million gallons of hog waste into a nearby wooded area, according to the NCDEQ.
New test results are coming from what experts say. None of them talk about the affects of GenX though. That left many neighbors still concerned as they grow tired of having to live with the faucets turned off.
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.
