Fairchild Air Force Base Area Residents: PFOA/PFOS Issues

April 17, 2018

Source: The Spokesman-Review

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. They are working with Napoli Shkolnik, a heavy-hitting New York firm that has secured major settlements in cases involving  fracking, water contamination and other environmental issues.
