Subject: [CPEO-MEF] PFAS: Madison (WI) shuts down a well
Madison shutting down PFAS-contaminated well while insisting water is safe

Wisconsin State Journal
March 5, 2019

Madison is shutting down a North Side drinking water well that has been contaminated with toxic chemicals from a nearby military base.

In announcing the shutdown Monday, the Madison Water Utility repeated the assurance it has made for months — that contamination levels in Well 15 remain under a controversial federal health advisory.

The shutdown abruptly halts an expanded program of monthly water testing at the well just weeks after it began, and it means Well 15 users will get water from other wells that haven’t been thoroughly tested for the contaminant.
