PORTSMOUTH — The Centers for Disease Control will conduct blood tests on 500 people exposed to contaminants from the Haven Well at Pease Tradeport.

“We are glad that those who have been exposed to these contaminants will be able to undergo the testing they need while limiting undue financial burden on the State of New Hampshire and the City of Portsmouth,” said Sens. Jeanne Shaheen and Kelly Ayotte in a joint statement.

Shaheen and Ayotte, both members of the Senate Armed Services Committee, worked to secure funding for additional tests. Funding for the added testing was included in a provision in the National Defense Authorization Act report.
