Lubeck Public Service District calls emergency meeting about GenX

WASHINGTON, W.Va. (WTAP) - The Lubeck Public Service District called an emergency meeting Thursday, to discuss GenX.

The board says they had just been informed of the GenX sampling Chemours is doing in their water wells, and called the meeting to make the board aware that it was happening.

They say at this time they don't know when they'll have those results. Chemours agreed to the US Environmental Protection Agency's request to conduct water sampling around its Washington Works plant.

Jerry Martin says "They were tested prior to our wells, I mean, at our wells, prior to the filters and after the filters so we should have some results but again we don't know the timing on that.”

Genx is the chemical the company began using as a replacement for the chemical C8 starting in 2011.
