In 2016, NC State and EPA scientists reported the presence of high concentrations of perfluorinated compounds in North Carolina’s Cape Fear River and and its watershed, and in the drinking water supply of more than 200,000 North Carolinians living downstream of the Chemours chemical manufacturing plant. Our center aims to determine the toxicity and bioaccumulation potential of these chemicals, and to devise methods of prevention and remediation that will restore the quality of North Carolinia’s water.
