Tomorrow evening, several researchers working with CFPUA on water quality concerns will be participating in a panel at the Warwick Center on the campus of UNCW. The panel, sponsored by the Eastern North Carolina American Chemical Society, is titled “GenX and the water we drink” and will be of particular interest to those following the science of GenX. It will feature a range of speakers, including faculty members from the Departments of Chemistry, Biology and Biochemistry working with CFPUA to identify unregulated compounds in the Cape Fear River.
The panel will begin at 6:30 pm on October 19.
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 contain GenX. As seen below, we are 42 percent of the way to our goal.
We will continue to update the public as the project moves forward.
