Air Force to pay Portsmouth $14M for water treatment By Jeff McMenemy Seacoast online (NH) September 14, 2018 PORTSMOUTH -- The Air Force has agreed to reimburse Portsmouth for as much as $14.3 million for the city’s costs to construct a water treatment facility to remove two types of dangerous PFAS chemicals from city-owned wells at the former Pease Air Force Base. The new treatment facility includes a dual filtration system consisting of both resin and granular activated carbon filters. The agreement follows extensive research, pilot testing and design of a system to treat the PFOS/PFOA contamination, according to city officials. Previous agreements with the Air Force have included the funding of a demonstration project for activated carbon filters for the Harrison and Smith wells, filters that have been in service for these wells since September 2016. The new treatment facility will treat those wells and the Haven well, which has been closed since May 2014 after Air Force officials found high levels of PFAS contamination in the well. … For the entire article, see http://www.seacoastonline.com/news/20180914/air-force-to-pay-portsmouth-14m-for-water-treatment -- Lenny Siegel Executive Director Center for Public Environmental Oversight a project of the Pacific Studies Center P.O.
