Toxic Chemicals Found at N Carolina Water Plant
  • venynxvenynx December 4
    A North Carolina city has stopped pumping water from a water treatment chemcials supplier plant after finding high levels of toxic chemicals, perhaps from firefighting foam.



    The Greensboro News & Record reports additional water samples
    were taken for testing Monday from the Greensboro Mitchell Water
    Treatment Plant.



    A July test at the plant found PFOS and PFAS levels 10 parts per
    trillion higher than the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's advised
    exposure levels. The U.S. Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease
    Registry says the chemicals are dangerous at levels around 10 times
    lower than the EPA's 70 parts-per-trillion standard.



    Department of Water Resources Assistant Director Mike Borchers says a
    temporary fix that uses carbon to filter out the chemicals will be
    implemented by mid-September.
