New Hanover Soil & Water Conservation District Board of Supervisors will hold a special meeting on Monday, July 31 at 8 a.m. at the NHC Government Center in the Lucie Harrell Conference Room (room 601).

This meeting is to approve a letter of support for NC State University’s grant application to the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) entitled “Assessing impact of drinking water exposure to GenX (hexafluoropropylene oxide dimer acid) in the Cape Fear River Basin, North Carolina.” The study would help to address community concerns about GenX exposure and health effects.
