On Feb. 21, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry announced eight sites near military installations that will be examined for human exposure to PFAS, but didn’t include the former Pease Air Force base in Portsmouth that was scheduled as the model test site to attest health impacts from PFAS, which are chemicals found in commercial household products and firefighting foams used on military bases.

PFAS chemicals seeped from soils to sources of drinking water at military bases and surrounding communities and were also found in water at the Saint-Gobain site in Merrimack.
