Please send comments on Chenmours' groundwater plan to the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) at:
before March 6, 2020.
DEQ needs to know that the public is paying attention. Here are some things to consider including in your letter of personal comments to DEQ about the current Chemours' plan.
1. Chemours has polluted 45,000 acres of local groundwater with toxic chemicals and poisoned public water supplies for decades, yet now Chemours proposes to avoid paying what is needed to protect people and our communities.
2. Chemours' plan leaves highly contaminated groundwater at the site and does little to stop toxic pollutants from from leaking into people's wells AND local rivers & streams.
3. DEQ must ensure that families, county citizens and downstream communities do not bear any financial burden in paying all costs associated with cleaning up all toxic pollutant emissions. AND that Chemours does pay directly for all cleanup costs.
4. Also, please let DEQ know that Chemours (and stockholders) must commit to placing the health of North Carolinians living near the facililty, the Cape Fear River, and in downstream communities - before it's bottom line - which their proposed plan fails to do!
