Health officials to give analysis of bloodwork from Pease
PORTSMOUTH — The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services is planning a public meeting to present an analysis of the blood testing program results related to chemical exposure at the Pease Tradeport.
The meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. Thursday at Community Campus in Portsmouth.
During two separate, two-month periods in 2015, the department facilitated blood tests for nearly 1,600 people.
A contaminant known as perfluorooctane sulfonic acid was detected in a well of the water system at the tradeport in 2014 at an elevated level.
The department will be resuming blood testing for people who consumed contaminated water at the Pease Tradeport and did not participate in the previous blood testing phases.
