Drinking water treatment system carries $99M price tag

BOLIVIA — Removing GenX, PFAs, 1,4-Dioxane and other contaminants from Brunswick County’s drinking water would cost $99 million if the county installed a reverse osmosis system, Brunswick County commissioners learned at their March 19 meeting.

Representatives from CDM Smith, the engineering firm commissioners hired to study water treatment options at the Northwest Water Treatment Plant, recommended a low-pressure RO system as the best method to remove more than 90 percent of contaminants.
