Air Force officials were joined by local activists, Mayor Jack Blalock and environmental professionals Tuesday to cut the ribbon for a groundwater filtration plant they say will remove contaminants which may result in adverse health effects at Pease International Tradeport.

The contaminants, perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), have been linked to firefighting foam used when the tradeport was an active Air Force base, before its 1991 closure.
