Jerad Kynaston

Here are photos for the Inlander for a story about Jerad Kynaston, who faces life in prison if convicted for a medical marijuana grow operation arrest in 2011. He planned on pleading guilty but may have received a reprieve when federal prosecutors failed to disclose to his legal team previously unknown police reports and witness statements. https://www.inlander.com/Bloglander/archives/2017/05/19/why-a-spokane-valley-man-could-face-life-in-prison-for-pot-and-why-the-case-may-now-be-falling-apart

PFOA/PFOS Contaminated Water Wells

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

Fairchild Water Contamination

Julie Dibble turns on a well water access, which she can’t use due to contamination from Fairchild Air Force Base, on land owned by her and her family on W. Thorpe Rd., in Spokane County, Wash., Thursday, May 11, 2017. Water contamination from perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) in firefighting foam has been found in water wells on the base and some areas nearby. The well in the photograph, one of two used on the property, was tested to contain 440 parts per trillion of PFOA and PFOS. 70 parts per trillion is considered the threshold for a combination of both contaminants to be a hazard to human health, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The U.S. Air Force is currently delivering bottled water to those affected including Dibble and her family. (Young Kwak/The Inlander)
