The North Carolina General Assembly has cut important protections for our water, leaving the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) unable to enforce environmental compliance for corporations. Water contamination issues like GenX can be prevented with action from lawmakers as well as proper allocation to the government agencies created to keep us safe.
The North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality found toxic GenX in treated drinking water, the Cape Fear River, groundwater, rain, fish, and even honey.
Make your voice heard – contact your legislator and ask them to prioritize clean water in North Carolina. We need funding adequately distributed to ensure our water is safe and properly tested to stay protected.
