NH health officials receive Pease well blood test results from 780 people

The Associated Press

PORTSMOUTH (AP) — State health officials say they have received test results from 780 people who had their blood tested for possible exposure to contaminated water at the former Pease Air Force Base.

The Portsmouth Herald reports the state Department of Health and Human Services say they sent out the 300 test results that were processed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Officials say they will continue to send out the 480 test results that were processed by AXYS Analytical Services.

The Haven well was closed in May 2014 after levels of a contaminant were found to be 12.5 times higher than the EPA's Provisional Health Advisory.
