In May, the Air Force announced it would not fund a health study of water contamination around Haven Well at the former Pease Air Force Base in Portsmouth. The city of Portsmouth closed the well in 2014 after PFC contamination levels were found to be 12.5 times higher than what was then the provisional health advisory from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
