Here are more than 300 bases with possible toxic ‘forever chemical’ contamination

Military Times – by Meghann Myers

Hundreds of military installations have either known or likely water contamination caused by runoff from firefighting foam used in response to vehicle and aircraft accidents, according to the Environmental Working Group.

Using Defense Department data, the organization built an interactive map of 305 sites, which are found in all 50 states. Each map dot opens up to information and links on perfluorooctane sulfonate or perfluorooctanoic acid, known as PFAS.

“Of these sites, 138 have not been previously identified on EWG’s map of known PFAS contamination at military bases, civilian airports and industrial sites,” according to a Tuesday new release. “In addition, 42 of these sites were not included on a list of 401 locations the Pentagon gave to Congress of active and former installations where PFAS contamination was known or suspected.”

    ‘The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mandated in 1989 (I peer-reviewed over 300 medical and clinical research areas and global science research on humans that took place for the deleterious effects of recycled water and chloramine toxic water in and on humans that had taken place for nearly forty-years) that ammonia be placed with chlorine for chloramine in spite of empirical evidence that chloramine initiated leukemia in experimental rats and cancer of the liver in experimental rats and osteomyelitis and bone marrow cancer favoring human females and bladder cancer favoring human males and neural-tube mutations in fetuses and breakage of sperm tails for infertility in human males’
