Navy needs to address other chemicals in Coupeville wells Letter to the Editor from Rick Abraham Whidbey News Times (WA) February 6, 2018 Editor, The Navy’s agreement to do something about its contamination of Coupeville’s water is long overdue. However, the decision the Navy and town are heralding will only partially address the problem. Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) leaking from the Navy’s Outlying Field were found in Coupeville’s water more than a year ago and it could be another year or more before a planned filter system is installed. Until then, Coupeville homes, schools and the hospital will continue to receive water containing PFASs that exceed the health guidelines of several states. Even after the filter is installed, the Navy says PFASs will not be entirely removed. When asked for details about reduction goals and monitoring, the Navy replied that it was “exploring options” and “has no specifics to share.” … For the entire letter, see http://www.whidbeynewstimes.com/letters/navy-needs-to-address-other-chemicals-in-coupeville-wells/ -- Lenny Siegel Executive Director Center for Public Environmental Oversight a project of the Pacific Studies Center P.O.
