Not just Luke: Water in 9 other Arizona places has tested high for firefighting foam toxins by Jen Fifield Arizona Republic May 2, 2019 Harmful, hard-to-eliminate toxins from firefighting foam and other industrial and household products have made their way into the water supply not just at Luke Air Force Base, as was announced last month, but across Arizona. Along with the groundwater on base, at least 19 other water systems in the state have found the same chemicals in their drinking water in the last five years, a review by The Arizona Republic of federal data and state documents found. Water systems, whether municipally operated or privately run, deliver water to Arizona households. The results show the toxins made their way into wells used for drinking water by 19 water systems. Of those 19 systems, nine detected the chemicals at a level higher than the federal health advisory level for perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), according to 2014 federally mandated tests, and subsequent tests by the state and public water systems. … For the entire article, see https://www.azcentral.com/story/news/local/tempe/2019/05/02/water-9-arizona-systems-have-tested-high-toxins-found-luke-air-force-base/3485082002/ -- Lenny Siegel Executive Director Center for Public Environmental Oversight a project of the Pacific Studies Center P.O.
