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. We are 70 percent of the way to our goal. As water is taken out, we are also seeing the levels of GenX continue to decrease. The chart below shows our sampling results since withdrawal began.
Beginning this month, Black & Veatch will provide monthly progress reports on the ongoing pilot test at Sweeney Water Treatment Plant. This month’s report summarizes the goal of the test and its components, while also providing preliminary data on their effectiveness in removing: perfluorinated compounds, endocrine disrupting compounds and pharmaceuticals and personal care products.

CFPUA has received results for October 18-23 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.
