This morning, CFPUA sent a letter to Secretary Michael Regan of the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality requesting more information on the number and identities of unregulated contaminants in the Cape Fear River.
As CFPUA continues its work with the faculty at UNCW to identify other compounds in the River, any data that NCDEQ could share on known unregulated contaminants would be helpful. CFPUA is asking the agency to share any existing information they have on these compounds. The letter reads in part:
"Due to the intensive nature of this work, any information on the number and identities of unregulated compounds in the Cape Fear River that NCDEQ currently has would be of extreme value to our efforts. Awareness of compounds already known to NCDEQ would allow UNCW faculty members to focus on compounds unknown to all—saving valuable time and ratepayer resources."

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.
