BREDL comments to NC DEQ regarding Addendum to Consent Order for Chemours PFAS pollution

Sep. 17, 2020: BREDL comments on the proposed Addendum to the Consent Order Paragraph 12, which requires additional actions by Chemours to prevent PFAS pollution from entering the Cape Fear River via contaminated groundwater from the Fayetteville Works Site.

The discovery of PFAS in the Cape Fear watershed, along with 1,4 dioxane and other emerging contaminants, should spur a rapid science-based response by state and local public officials in North Carolina. And the response must include a statewide public system which affords people the ability to find their potential exposure and health risk in order to take steps to protect themselves, their families and their communities.
