A River of Woes

Record #:
In June 2017, an industrial chemical called GenX was identified in drinking water drawn from the Cape Fear River in the Wilmington area of North Carolina. State officials have found GenX in private wells near the plant, as well as at several other locations, at varying concentrations. With increasing public concern, researchers are studying the effects of the chemical on human health.
