Editor’s note: Pittsboro Town Manager Chris Kennedy said in reponse to the question posed that flushed water “was water with 1,4 dioxane and not concentrated 1,4 dioxane.” With the town’s flusing exercise, he said, “the flushed water is directed onto the ground and into our ditches around the tank.”
