CFPUA Chairman’s Daily Update: August 8, 2017

Mike Brown, CFPUA Board chairman, will provide a once daily update with information on activity surrounding GenX. Updates will be provided each weekday. Below please find Chairman Mike Brown’s daily update on tomorrow’s Board Meeting and recent meter readings from the Ogden Park water station. 


1. CFPUA will hold its monthly Board Meeting tomorrow, August 9, in the Lucie Harrell Conference Room at 230 Government Center Drive. CFPUA Board Meetings are open to the public.

See more information on tomorrow’s meeting


2. For CFPUA customers who prefer water from an alternate source, CFPUA is offering free water from a station at 615 Ogden Park Drive. This water is treated at CFPUA’s Richardson Nanofiltration plant, and testing of the finished water from the plant did not detect GenX.

Every Monday and Friday, CFPUA Staff reads the meter at the station to monitor its use. Monday’s reading showed that a total of 4,111 gallons have been withdrawn since July 18, the day CFPUA installed the meter. The running average is 196 gallons per day.

CFPUA remains committed to keeping the water station open until levels of GenX remain consistently below the NCDHHS health goal of 140 parts per trillion (ppt).

3. CFPUA will remove approximately 48 million gallons of treated drinking water stored in the Peedee aquifer while Chemours was discharging GenX into the Cape Fear River.

Tests show that the water at the Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR) well on Westbrook Avenue are below the GenX health goal of 140 ppt set by the NCDHHS, but above the average levels that we are currently supplying to our customers.

CFPUA plans to start withdrawing the water in early September. It will be discharged to the sewer system, and returned to the river downstream of all drinking water intakes.

4. Last week, CFPUA received updated water sampling data from Eurofins for our Sweeney Water Plant. The most recent data shows levels of GenX below the NC DHHS health advisory goal of 140 ppt. See below for specific sampling data:

5. For citizens unable to get to the free water station, CFPUA is partnering with the City of Wilmington and area churches to provide free water from Ogden Park.

Churches will transport empty containers to Ogden Park where they will be filled with treated groundwater at no cost. Church volunteers will then bring the filled containers back to the designated churches, where customers can pick them up. Churches will be open for drop off between 9:00 am and 11:00 am every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and for pick up between 1:00 pm and 3:00 p.m. on the same days.
