As temperatures drop, CFPUA staff is taking measures to ensure the water station remains open and accessible to residents. CFPUA advises that these measures may affect the appearance of the water station. Please note that the water station remains open every day from 8 am to 8pm in Ogden Park, across from the tennis courts parking lot.
The running average of water taken from the station is 207 gallons per day.
CFPUA customers may receive a request in the mail from DVR Labs c/o Carolina Fresh Water in Greensboro, NC for tap water samples from their home. CFPUA is not affiliated with DVR labs, nor are we familiar with their qualifications to test drinking water.
Proper water sampling requires testers to follow strict protocols to avoid sample contamination, and not all labs have the expertise to test for all compounds—especially unregulated compounds.
In addition to the daily testing for regulated compounds, CFPUA continues to sample weekly for levels of GenX in the treated water in Sweeney Water Treatment Plant. We continue to work with our partners at UNCW to determine if other, unknown compounds are present in the water. For more information on CFPUA’s water sampling program, please see our website.
We have received the results for November 8 to November 13 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.
