PORTSMOUTH (AP) — The Air Force says it's moving forward with plans for two groundwater treatment systems to protect wells on and near the former Pease Air Force Base from PFC contamination.
The Portsmouth Herald reports the Air Force's Civil Engineer Center said Tuesday it submitted remedial designs to the Environmental Protection Agency for both systems. The systems will be built in 2017, pending the EPA's approval.
The center says it's working with the city, EPA and other authorities to design and construct the systems. One system will treat groundwater at what is now the Pease International Tradeport. The other will treat groundwater under the Pease airfield.
The city closed the Pease base's Haven well in May 2014 after high levels of perfluorooctane sulfonic acid were found in its water supply.
