No to Chemours Water Renewal - Permit # NC 0003573
Sign this petition to SAY NO to Chemours renewal request for permit NC 0003573 and help stop the dumping of the toxic chemical GenX into Wilmingtons drinking water.
Chemours is a company that is currently responsible for the production of GenX, A chemical replacement for a key ingredient in Teflon linked to cancer and a host of other ailments. It has been found in the drinking water system of the Cape Fear Public Utility Authority (CFPUA), which cannot filter it.
In October of 2016 the permit for Chemours to continue production in NC came up for renewal. This petition is to ask the NC DEQ and EPA to reject their request for renewal and in turn cease the production of this chemical and its subsequent release into our drinking water.
