Chemours wants to expand its manufacturing facility in Bladen County. The company is scheduled to hold two public information meetings to give people an opportunity to learn more about the planned expansion, but some local environment protection organizations are not pleased with the company’s plans.
Ahead of the planned sessions, WWAY spoke with Cape Fear River Watch in Wilmington, and a New Hanover County resident whose well water was found contaminated with PFAS and GenX after Chemours testing in August.
Chemours will hold two public information session about its plans to expand its manufacturing capabilities at the Fayetteville Works site in Bladen County. The sessions will be held from 5pm-7pm at Bladen Community College on September 20, and at the Leland Cultural Arts Center on September 21.
