Well Sampling Information for Lower Cape Fear Area Residents

At DEQ's direction, Chemours is sampling for PFAS contamination in private drinking water wells in four downstream counties: New Hanover, Brunswick, Columbus and Pender. Private drinking water well sampling began in February. To have your well sampled, call Chemours at (910) 678-1100. Messages to the Chemours call-line are monitored during regular business hours (Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.); Chemours should respond within 24-to-48 hours starting on the next business day. Chemours is also sending letters to well owners/residents requesting information about primary drinking water sources and offering sampling.  Please click links below for more information.
