Water contaminated with bromate was found at three sites, officials said: NAS 1, NAS II and Niscemi. Those areas encompass schools, a hospital, commissary, barracks and a hotel.
No elevated bromate levels have been identified in water at Sigonella's main housing site, Marinai, which has a separate water treatment system, said Naples-based spokesman Lt. Timothy Hawkins in an email. He said that the source for the affected areas of NAS Sigonella was ground water.
