Starting today, CFPUA will have a second water station available to residents of Wilmington and New Hanover County located in Veterans Park. The station provides water from our groundwater system located in the southern part of New Hanover County to interested customers at no cost. The groundwater system has been tested for GenX, and the compound was not detected.
As the most recent results show below, levels of the compound GenX are decreasing. The compound, however, is still present in the treated water from Sweeney Water Treatment Plant.
Residential customers may fill their clean personal containers at New Hanover County’s Veterans Park, near the eastern entrance to the soccer fields. The water station is available daily from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. The water station at Ogden Park will remain open every day from 8 am to 8 pm as well.
We have received results for February 12 and February 20 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 parts per trillion (ppt).
