On Wednesday morning, the CFPUA Board met to discuss the utility’s legal position in regard to the compound GenX. The Board voted to continue our contract with the Brooks Pierce law firm. Brooks Pierce has provided a critical service to CFPUA, helping us to build a legal strategy that will work to protect the drinking water source for our over 200,000 customers. With the help of the firm, CFPUA will continue to assess all legal options on the table and will continue to push for action from the state and federal agencies responsible for monitoring the quality of the Cape Fear River.
Earlier this week, CFPUA received results for the period August 25-28 from our on-going GenX testing at the Sweeney Water Treatment Plant. Levels of GenX continue to remain below the DHHS health goal of 140 ppt.
