ST. PAULS, N.C. -- After nearly a year without getting answers, residents from all over North Carolina got a chance to ask questions directly to the makers of GenX.
- Town hall held in St. Pauls Tuesday evening.
- Chemours: Carbon is key to removing GenX.

A town hall was held for the Chemours plant in Fayetteville where the potentially cancer-causing chemical is made.
Chemours said carbon is the key to removing GenX in the water and air emissions.
The company said they've designed a carbon air emissions control system.
However, people affected in homes must continue to use bottled water in the meantime.
"I used to all through the night get up and get water," said Edward Ivey. "Now, I'm still laying in the bed getting water and that's aggravating to have to go out there all the time."
Chemours said they're spending $100 million to fix the issue.
With that money, Chemours said they'll be able to reduce air emissions by 99 percent by the end of 2019.
