Officials said Wednesday that the perfluorinated chemicals, known by the acronyms PFOS and PFOA, have been found at concerning levels in 17 residential wells, including some that supply drinking water. Between Monday and Wednesday afternoon, samples were taken from roughly 30 additional wells and sent to a private lab. The wells tested in the first round are near Thorpe, Rambo and Craig roads, just east of the base. The wells currently being tested are spread farther east and south of the base, including some along Highway 902 and on Hayford Road near Interstate 90. All are roughly within a mile of the base.

They are supplying bottled water to residents affected by the contamination. … For the entire article, see http://www.spokesman.com/stories/2017/may/10/fairchild-air-force-base-expands-search-for-contam/ -- Lenny Siegel Executive Director Center for Public Environmental Oversight a project of the Pacific Studies Center P.O.
