A drinking water sample at Ft. Wainwright has tested positive for perfluorinated compound contamination. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, it’s the first positive test on post, and it’s unclear if it’s indicative of groundwater contamination already effecting three other locations in the Fairbanks-North Pole area.

Dan has been in public radio news in Alaska since 1993. He’s worked as a reporter, newscaster and talk show host at stations in McGrath, Valdez and Fairbanks. Dan’s experience includes coverage of a wide range of topics, from wolf control to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and dog mushing.
