WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

The disappointing news continues for veterans waiting for medical care at the Wilmington VA clinic.

The latest round of testing still shows there are locations in the building that have higher copper levels than the EPA Action Levels.

Water contamination has been causing problems at the clinic since March 2015.

Patients with routine medical needs have had their appointments canceled indefinitely. Patients with more urgent medical needs have been referred to other providers at the VA’s expense.

The VA says it is at the mercy of its landlord, Summit Smith HealthCare of Wisconsin, to fix the problems with the building.
