Here are photos from last Thursday for the Inlander’s story about how perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) from Fairchild Air Force Base contaminated water wells in the neighborhood immediately to the east of the base in Spokane County, Wash. The base used firefighting foam containing PFOA and PFOS from 1970-2016. https://www.inlander.com/spokane/dont-drink-the-water/Content?oid=4133868
In this photo for Cityvision magazine, Rosalia Mayor Nanette Konishi poses for a photograph, back in September, with a 2014 Ford C-Max Hybrid Energi, owned by a local resident. Avista Utilities will install two electric vehicle charging units at the town’s welcome center. https://www.awcnet.org/Portals/0/Documents/Publications/Cityvision/2016/Cityvision0916.pdf.
