Chemicals linked to N.H. contamination found in Brunswick Concentrations of perflourinated chemicals in groundwater at the site of Building 653 on the former Brunswick Naval Air Station have been found above the Environmental Protection Agencys provisional health guideline. By Walter Wuthmann The Forecaster (ME) September 17, 2015 BRUNSWICK, Maine - The contamination of children by a potentially hazardous chemical at a former Air Force base in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, has raised concerns about the possibility of a similar problem in Brunswick. The children and other residents in Portsmouth drank tainted water from a well on the former Pease Air Force Base, according to health officials there. The well was voluntarily closed in May 2014 after the chemicals were discovered. A New Hampshire epidemiologist announced Sept. 9 at a meeting at the site that the children tested had levels of perflourinated chemicals in their blood 10 times higher than in children not exposed to the contaminated water. … On Sept. 4, geologist Carol White, on behalf of the group Brunswick Area Citizens for a Safe Environment, wrote to the Navy’s Base Realignment and Closure program criticizing its proposed plan to deal with the groundwater contamination. … For the entire article, see https://bangordailynews.com/2015/09/17/news/midcoast/chemicals-linked-to-n-h-contamination-found-in-brunswick/ See also https://bangordailynews.com/2015/09/17/news/midcoast/brunswick-residents-concerned-about-contaminated-groundwater/ -- Lenny Siegel Executive Director, Center for Public Environmental Oversight a project of the Pacific Studies Center 278-A Hope Street Mountain View, CA 94041 Voice: 650-961-8918 or 650-969-1545 Fax: 650-961-8918 LSiegel@cpeo.org http://www.cpeo.org _______________________________________________ Military mailing list Military@lists.cpeo.org http://lists.cpeo.org/listinfo.cgi/military-cpeo.org
