Nearly 100 people who live near Fairchild Air Force Base have filed a federal class-action lawsuit against manufacturers of a firefighting foam that has
contaminated the area’s water supply.
The plaintiffs claim they have suffered from an array of serious health problems caused by the water contamination, which resulted from decades of foam runoff
from a training site on the air base. Some also claim the pollution has diminished their property values.
