Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON — Two drinking water wells near Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor in Washington state were found to be extremely contaminated with an industrial chemical found in firefighting foam, according to an investigation by the base.

PFAS, or per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, is a family of chemicals used in firefighting foam and other products such as nonstick cookware. Military bases throughout the country have been cited in news reports for being a source of nearby PFAS-contaminated water.
