NC State researchers will present the initial tap water results from the GenX exposure study at a meeting on Tuesday night.
Discussing the latest findings about the many unknowns of GenX, that's what several UNCW researchers did Wednesday afternoon just days after they delivered their final report to state lawmakers.
Researchers at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington have delivered their final report on GenX to the NC House of Representatives, which reveals several new poly-fluoroalkyl chemical compounds were identified at the Sweeney Water Treatment Facility.
As flourochemical compounds continue to show up in the water samples taken from the Cape Fear River, the City of Wilmington is considering a resolution asking the NC Department of Environmental Quality to stop Chemours from producing GenX.
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 little-studied compound that was found in a North Carolina river last year has also been found in a well under a West Virginia Chemours facility.
CFPUA: We cannot rely on Chemours to control discharges from its site.
Brunswick County is moving forward with a study of water treatment methods for different compounds and will begin work to put those water treatment plans in place by 2019.
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.
