CFPUA Update: October 4, 2017

CFPUA Representatives Presented Actions on GenX to Senate Select Committee Yesterday


Yesterday afternoon, representatives from CFPUA spoke at the meeting of the Senate Select Committee on North Carolina River Water Quality. Staff presented on the research being done with UNCW to identify other compounds in the river; the filter test at Sweeney Water Treatment Plant and the Aquifer Storage and Recovery project, and answered questions from members of the committee.Learn more about the meeting in the coverage by WWAY and StarNews.


CFPUA Moves to One Day a Week Sampling for GenX


On June 26, CFPUA staff began sampling water from Sweeney Water Treatment Plant to test for GenX. After Chemours voluntarily stopped the compound’s discharge, we have seen levels decrease. Levels have consistently been below the DHHS health goal of 140 ppt since July 21, 2017.

CFPUA feels confident that levels will remain low as long as Chemours continues not to discharge. For this reason, we will continue sampling the treated water at Sweeney Water Treatment Plant one day a week. We will continue to share those results with the public as we receive them.


Aquifer Storage and Recovery Progress

On September 20, 2017, CFPUA began pumping water out of the Aquifer Storage and Recovery well to remove nearly 50 million gallons of water that contains GenX. As seen below, we are a little over 20 percent of the way to our goal.

We will continue to update the public as the project moves forward.
