The state is investigating reports of an air emissions leak at Chemours’ Fayetteville facility and whether the leak constitutes a violation of the company’s air permit.
DEQ is moving to revoke Chemours’ permit to discharge process wastewater because the company failed to comply with its permit and failed to report an October spill.
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.
Latest test results of water samples taken from the Northwest Water Treatment Plant show levels of GenX double the established health goal, according to a news release from Brunswick County.
An EPA report released today identified flourinated compounds coming from manufacturing areas inside Chemours' Fayetteville Works Facility.
On Thursday, the House Select Committee on North Carolina River Quality met at the General Assembly to hear directly from researchers and state officials dealing with the issue.
The N.C. DEQ says Chemours is living up to the state's demands to stop releasing flourinated compounds into the Cape Fear River.
A new class action lawsuit has come down on DuPont and Chemours as a result of the GenX contamination of the Cape Fear River.
The state has selected who will chair the newly expanded state science panel that will examine a broad scope of potential impacts to health and the environment from new or emerging chemicals.
