  • Description:
    The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) is a public health agency that evaluates environmental exposures for public health risks. ATSDR has released a health consultation on drinking water contamination at the Pease Tradeport PWS. The health consultation evaluated whether water containing PFAS posed a health threat to people who drank it any time since 1993. Those people included workers at the Pease International Tradeport. They also included children at the two childcare centers at the Pease International Tradeport. This fact sheet summarizes ATSDR’s findings, released in April 1, 2019. The full report is titled “Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) in the Pease Tradeport Public Water System (PWS).” You can find the report at https://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/HAC/PHA/HCPHA. asp?State=NH. The Pease Tradeport PWS serves the Pease International Tradeport and the New Hampshire Air National Guard base at the former Pease Air Force Base (AFB). PFAS in the Pease Tradeport PWS likely came from aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF) used on the former Pease AFB, now the site of Pease International Tradeport. The base used AFFF to fight fires. 303375-A A_FS_PeaseTradeport-508.pdf
