Air Force Testing Water Wells Around Goodfellow Air Force Base BY YANTIS GREEN San Angelo Live (TX) OCTOBER 22, 2020 JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-LACKLAND, TX – The Air Force is asking owners of private drinking water wells near Goodfellow Air Force Base, Texas, to allow sampling as part of its on-going effort to determine if chemicals used in firefighting foam may have migrated off the installation. In September 2020, the Air Force Civil Engineer Center sampled 47 off-base wells near the installation to determine if Perfluorooctane Sulfonate and Perfluorooctanoic Acid, or PFOS/PFOA, is present at levels above the Environmental Protection Agency’s lifetime health advisory, or HA, of 70 parts per trillion in drinking water. Preliminary results indicate PFOS/PFOA may be present in levels above the EPA lifetime HA in some sampled wells north to northeast of the installation. The Air Force immediately provided bottled water to those residents, and is awaiting final validation of sampling results. The Air Force initially identified over 300 parcels with potential drinking water wells to sample in a one-half to one-mile area around the base bounded by the Concho River to the North, Loop 306 to the East, FM 765 to the South, and Christoval Road and the Concho River to the West. … For the entire article, see https://sanangelolive.com/news/san-angelo/2020-10-22/air-force-testing-water-wells-around-goodfellow-air-force-base -- Lenny Siegel Executive Director Center for Public Environmental Oversight A project of the Pacific Studies Center LSiegel@cpeo.org P.O.
