Wilmington man wants to use well, disconnect from CFPUA

Even though the latest GenX test results show levels below the state’s health goal of 140 parts per trillion, just one part is too much for one Wilmington man.
Spending months at Ground Zero is taking its toll.
"I was wanting to protect my family when I first found out about GenX so I was able to go out and drill a well," Kadnar said.
CFPUA’s Environmental Management Director Beth Eckhert sent Kadnar a letter once CFPUA got wind of Kadnar’s new $6,000 well.
"It has been reiterated more than once to me that I am not allowed or none of us are allowed to disconnect from their water source," Kadnar said.
Kadnar said.
"Public water systems provide both fire protection and water for drinking," CFPUA spokesperson Peg Hall Williams said.
These are public health and environmental issues."
Williams added: "Our ordinance does’t allow customers who are already connected to the system to disconnect.
He received a letter from CFPUA executive Jim Fletchner in October stating his request to disconnect was denied per CFPUA’s ordinance.
