    Today’s lead editorial is horribly alarmist. And just plain bad science. A little background is necessary. The C8 level in the Cape Fear River, source of Fayetteville’s water, is very low and not increasing. It’s also no higher downstream of the plant than it is upstream. And the only place it’s increased (from 7 to 17 ppb) is in one test well on DuPont property about 1/2 mile from the river.

    UPDATE: Via email, Tim White, Editorial page Editor, agreed that the paper had missed the mark today. Just wanted to set the record straight.
