WILMINGTON – An alliance of advocacy groups, community leaders, educators and professionals focused on water quality says elected officials, health and environmental officials and public utilities have failed to communicate effectively with the public about the possible health risks associated with GenX in the area’s drinking water.
The group, Clean Cape Fear, blames inadequate oversight, and plans to host a community discussion 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, July 5, at the Coastline Conference and Event Center at 501 Nutt St. The session will include brainstorming on ideas and plans for providing outreach and support to everyone who may be affected by the water contamination. Deborah Dicks Maxwell, president of the New Hanover County NAACP, and others will lead the discussion.
