The North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality will hold a community information meeting in southeastern North Carolina at the end of the month to update information on private well sampling underway for PFAS contamination in Columbus, New Hanover, Brunswick, and Pender Counties.
Staff will also answer questions from the public about the private well sampling and alternate water supplies on Tuesday, November 29 at 6 p.m. at the Riegelwood Community Center.
Speaker sign-up will be available upon arrival at the meeting.
At DEQ's direction, Chemours is sampling for PFAS contamination in eligible private drinking water wells downstream of the Fayetteville Works Facility.
Chemours is required to provide alternate water supplies to residents whose wells exceed specific action levels.
