Class Action Claims for GenX Contamination of Cape Fear River

man in safety equipment checks water for GenXOn October 3, 2017, the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin and our co-counsel The Hannon Law Firm, LLC have filed suit against The Chemours Company and duPont Chemical Corporation seeking compensation for property related damages and funds for a monitoring program for early detection of disease because of GenX and other toxic contamination released from the companies’ Fayetteville Works Site. The GenX and other toxic chemicals, including PFOA and other perfluorinated chemicals, have contaminated water that the Cape Fear Public Utility Authority (CFPUA) in Wilmington, North Carolina uses to supply the majority of properties in Wilmington.

The CFPUA provides water to over 100,000 residents in Wilmington using surface water from the Cape Fear River. Testing done by North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality (“NCEDQ”) has verified that PFAS and PFECAs including GenX released from the Fayetteville Works Site have contaminated the CFPUA water supply from the Cape Fear River.
