As 2017 wraps up, CFPUA would like to take the opportunity to thank our customers, and members of the community, who rallied around the issue of water quality in the Cape Fear Region this year. The hard work of local officials, environmental groups, researchers and concerned citizens spurred statewide action on unregulated contaminants in the Cape Fear River, and has led to the creation of new partnerships and avenues of communication. Our combined work has already resulted in tangible benefits for our community, and has laid the foundation for decisive action against emerging compounds into the future.
Efforts this year to improve water quality include, but are not limited to:
CFPUA remains dedicated to the resolution of water quality concerns in our region, and will continue to prioritize transparency and action in 2018.
CFPUA offices will be closed Monday, December 25 through Wednesday, December 27 in observance of the holidays. We will resume updates on Friday, December 29.
Beginning January 1, 2018, CFPUA will begin sending out twice weekly updates on Mondays and Thursdays.
We have received the latest results for November and December 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.
