CFPUA Update: December 13, 2017 | Understanding Costs Associated with GenX

Understanding Costs Associated with GenX 

CFPUA continues taking extra steps to ensure our customers receive the highest quality drinking water possible. As our response to unregulated compounds increases, so do our costs. The lack of information surrounding unregulated compounds makes water treatment more complex and associated research costly.

Expenditures related to GenX include:

  • Fees to private labs for testing of GenX and other compounds.
  • Our contract with Black & Veatch – this contract allows CFPUA to work with a global leader in water infrastructure design to conduct a pilot test. The pilot test program provides useful data on the potential of Granular Activated Carbon and Ion Exchange treatments to remove emerging and unregulated contaminates.
  • CFPUA’s partnership and contract with UNCW to identify other unregulated contaminates and to include them in the pilot study.
  • Environmental engineering services related to pumping water out of the Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR) well to remove nearly 50 million gallons of water that contained GenX.
  • Legal action against Chemours. 

 To date, the contract value of services related to GenX is $ 1,773,816.04. Let’s break this down:

  • As of December 13, 2017, CFPUA has spent $ 843,115.30 related to these contracts.
  • Additional costs were incurred associated with the water in the ASR well. These costs include the initial cost to treat that water ($ 147,500) and then treatment costs related to running the water through our wastewater process to discharge it out to the river ($ 166,000).   
  • This brings the total costs that CFPUA has incurred related to GenX to $1,156,615.30. 

Please note, these costs do not include staff time spent on GenX related activities.

CFPUA is thankful for the $185,000 from House Bill 56 to offset costs related to our UNCW partnership and pilot testing. To counterbalance costs, CFPUA continues legal action against Chemours.

CFPUA remains committed to identifying and quantifying unregulated contaminants in our source water and providing the highest quality drinking water possible. We share our customers’ concerns about water quality and will continue to make results available as we receive them.
