In response to COVID-19, and in alignment with limiting personal contact, Chemours is taking the following steps in regard to the off-site residential drinking water program being implemented under the Consent Order.
- Bottled water will continue to be delivered as scheduled, and supplemental water will be available at our plant site on Mondays from 2-6 p.m. and Saturdays 8-10 a.m.
- Additional off-site residential sampling was suspended as of the end of day Wednesday, March 25, 2020; Chemours has resumed residential sampling as of June 1, 2020.
- New installations of RO and GAC water filtration systems were suspended as of the end of day Wednesday, March 25, 2020; Chemours has resumed RO and GAC installations as of June 22, 2020.
- Maintenance of RO and GAC units will continue to be provided if necessary, as requested by the resident and with the resident's approval to be on the property or enter the premise.
- Quarterly sampling of GAC units will continue, after obtaining resident's approval to be on the property.
As the nature, scope, and duration of potential COVID-19 impacts are uncertain, Chemours will supplement these steps as more information becomes available or additional steps are needed.
The Fayetteville Works manufacturing site is located on a 2,150-acre site in southeast North Carolina, near the Bladen and Cumberland county line, of which approximately 400 acres is developed. Two other chemical manufacturing operations are located on the site, and together, we employ more than 550 people from the surrounding community.
Through the efforts of site employee volunteers, undeveloped areas of the site are home to many native North Carolina grasses, wildflowers and wildlife species, including deer, wild turkey, squirrels, rabbits and many more.
