DHHS To Report On First 100 Blood Tests At Pease

Jun 16, 2015

New Hampshire Health And Human Services will discuss the results of the first 100 blood samples provided by individuals who spend time on the Pease Tradeport.  

A total of 433 people have been tested for the perfluorochemical “PFOS” after the city of Portsmouth discovered a high concentration of the contaminant in the Haven well on Pease.  The well has since been shut off.

The state epidemiologist Ben Chan will present a summary report showing the concentration of PFOS in individuals’ blood at 6pm on Wednesday at the Pease offices of the Department of Environmental Services.
