North Carolina environmental regulators announced this week that a plant that for years discharged so-called “forever chemicals” into the air and water is not currently in compliance with its air permit. The StarNews reports that in a letter to Chemours, the Department of Environmental Quality warned that it is preparing an enforcement action against the company’s Fayetteville Works plant in Bladen County. Regulators say the facility has been exceeding its GenX air pollution limits. In a statement to the newspaper, Chemours said it plans to take corrective action to fix the issue in the long term.
