WILMINGTON — Cape Fear Public Utility Authority is asking the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality to revise a proposed permit that would allow Chemours to treat up to 2.9 million gallons of contaminated water and discharge it into the Cape Fear River each day.
NCDEQ announced in March it would accept feedback on the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System wastewater permit. In response, CFPUA asked for three changes: require Chemours to recycle and reuse all of the waste from the treatment; order Chemours to monitor and control 99% of all PFAS being discharged and direct the company to manage for 24-hour storm events with more than a half-inch of rain.
