Samples of Water Pollution Exist at Grissom Air Reserve Base

Civilian Exposure - Grissom Air Force Base IndianaIn our ongoing search into other bases across the U.S. facing contamination issues, we stumbled upon a recent article detailing water pollution found in water samples at Grissom Air Reserve Base in Indiana.

According to the reports, groundwater tests revealed two locations that formerly served as fire-training areas are contaminated with PFCs, a synthetic chemical that is found in the foam used by firefighters since the 1970s. This is similar to a recent story we shared about Willow Grove Naval Air Station.

Testing of the wells will begin in early September. Impact and health risks associated with PFCs is an emerging science.  It looks like we have another prolific contaminant present that we will have to keep our eye on at bases around the country.
