CFPUA To Use $185,000 from HB 56 to Address Water Quality Concerns


On Wednesday, the North Carolina General Assembly passed HB 56—a bill that gives CFPUA $185,000 for the further study of GenX.

According to the bill, $100,000 of that money must be used, in coordination with surrounding public utilities, for the study of potential treatment technologies that may be successful in removing GenX from the water. CFPUA intends to use these funds for the on-going pilot test at Sweeney Water Treatment Plant that is studying the effectiveness of Granular Activated Carbon and Ion Exchange in removing GenX and other compounds from the water.

$85,000 of the allocated funds must be used to continue monitoring water supplies taken from the Cape Fear River. As has been reported, CFPUA samples treated water from Sweeney Water Treatment Plant to test for the levels of GenX. These funds will be used to continue that program.

CFPUA will continue to make results of all of these efforts available to the public. Additionally, the bill requires that we produce an interim progress report by December 1 and a final report by April 1, 2018.


Most recent GenX Results


On Wednesday, CFPUA received results for September 22-27 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.
