Our continuing concern about industrial contaminants in the Haw River – and in Pittsboro’s drinking water.We have a new handout on our concerns about the levels of PFAS and 1.4-dioxane in the Haw River. Pittsboro is the only municipality in our watershed that uses the Haw River as it’s source for drinking water. Contamination from industrial chemicals in the upper part of the Haw River watershed are exceeding EPA health guidance standards and are also contaminating drinking water sources in downstream communities on the Cape Fear River (which the Haw flows into) including Fayetteville and Wilmington
