Water Contamination in N.H.

Water Contamination in N.H.

water_tap_efx2.jpg
NHPR’s ongoing coverage of water contamination at the former Pease Air Force Base and in the communities surrounding the Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics plant in Merrimack. We’ll keep you updated on day to day developments, and ask bigger questions, such as:

  • What do scientists know about the health effects of perfluorochemicals like PFOA, PFOS and PFHxS?
  • How are policy makers in New Hampshire responding to these water contaminants?
  • How are scientists and policymakers communicating potential risks?
  • How are other states responding to similar contaminations?
