The Air Force plans to connect properties in Moose Creek that have PFAS contaminated wells, to the North Pole city water system. The 50-million-dollar project is the Air Force’s solution to providing safe water to about 170 properties in the Moose Creek community, southeast of Fairbanks, where historic use of PFAS firefighting foams at Eielson Air Force Base, polluted groundwater. KUAC’s Dan Bross reports.
