Connors Wants Blood Tests For Newington Residents

Newington Selectboard Chair Ted Connors toured the new $9.3 million treatment plant at the firefighting training area of the former Pease Air Force Base and called upon the state Department of Health and Human Services to test for blood contamination in Newington residents.

Town officials and residents are concerned about the "40 ish private residentals drinking wells" that are showing low levels of PFAS chemicals, now but worry those levels could rise over time, Connors said.

The Portsmouth Herald published an article covering this tour and Mr. Connors comments on July 26, 2018 and can be found below.
