CFPUA Receives Update on UNCW Study Progress


On Monday, CFPUA staff met with faculty members from UNCW to learn about their progress in identifying and quantifying compounds in the Cape Fear River. Researchers from the University are currently in the beginning phases of the study, which includes preliminary data gathering and a world-wide search for testing standards that would allow them to quantify levels of various compounds.

Faculty informed CFPUA that they have taken samples from the river at a location downtown and from treated water from a tap on campus. They are currently testing to confirm the absence or presence of various compounds, and will begin work to determine if, and how, they can quantify their levels in the future.

The next step of the study will be to identify the compounds in order to better understand where they come from and how they behave once they are in the river. As results are verified, we will continue to update the public on their findings.


CFPUA Continues to Pump Water from the Aquifer Storage and Recovery Well


On September 20, CFPUA began pumping water from our Aquifer Storage and Recovery well to remove water that contains the compound GenX. Pumping at 500 gallons per minute, the project is 30 percent completed and has taken out nearly 15 million gallons of water to date.
