Hello. I'm responding to a few records requests you have submitted to Cape Fear Public Utility Authority. You faxed your requests to our customer service department, indicating you had originally submitted them several months ago. I'm not sure how you originally submitted them, but we never received your original requests. As such, we are just now beginning consider them.

Regarding this request:

We also seek records that contain, constitute, or reference material related to potential water contamination from North Carolina chemical plants, including but not limited to records related to chemicals collectively identified by DuPont company and The Chemours Company FC, LLC as GenX.

You will need to be more specific in terms of the substances for which you are seeking information. CFPUA is a public water utility, not a regulatory agency, and don't necessarily know the origins of whatever contaminants might be found in our source water. We can search for records related to GenX, which you reference specifically.
