Navy to test drinking water from wells bordering Bangor for contamination By Josh Farley Kitsap Sun (WA) January 31, 2020 BANGOR - The Navy will test the drinking water of residents whose homes border Naval Base-Kitsap to determine whether there are dangerous levels of contamination from firefighting foam once used at Bangor. If any homes in areas bordering the base are found to have what are commonly called PFAS in dangerous concentrations, they will receive bottled water indefinitely, "until a long-term solution is implemented," the Navy told the Kitsap Sun. The Navy will pay for testing for homes on their own wells and is informing more than 1,000 addresses that surround Bangor via letters sent Thursday.
