Message About GenX

UNCW Faculty and Staff,

Like countless businesses, residences and public and private agencies in New Hanover County, UNCW receives its water supply from the Cape Fear Public Utility Authority. As you know, members of the community have expressed concerns that the water supply may contain a chemical known as GenX, as it has been found in the Cape Fear River. Local, state and federal authorities are reviewing the situation, as are we, and information will be shared as it becomes available.

For specific questions, please contact EH&S Director.
