Now Investigating Claims for Diminished Property Values Due to Tainted Drinking Water

Wilmington area property and homeowners have long enjoyed the luxury of location, location, location. Unless their property or homes derive its drinking water from the Cape Fear River.

More than 100,000 Wilmington area property and homeowners may have suffered diminished values, potential injuries, and future inconvenience because the source of their drinking water has been contaminated for more than 20 years with perfluoroalkyls and polyfluoroalkyls, including the most recently discovered GenX.

These toxic compounds are chemical cousins to the FDA-banned C8, which was found to have contaminated much of West Virginia and the Ohio River Valley, and the culprit behind a recently settled $670.7 million class action lawsuit claiming DuPont (C8’s manufacturer) hid evidence for decades that it caused testicular and kidney cancer, among a host of other ailments, including death.

The chemicals in the water supply are produced 100 miles upstream in Fayetteville at the DuPont plant and are said to be dangerously toxic at a level where even one drop dissolved into 20 Olympic sized pools may pose health risks.

We believe some homeowners may see their property values drop as much as 30% or more. Some may be unable to sell their homes at all.
