The body of her husband John Marshall was recovered in the river on Jan. 26, 2016, a day after he went missing after going for a run from the nearby YMCA. Marshall was the chief surgeon at the Mann-Grandstaff Veterans Affairs Medical Center. The medical examiner has determined the cause of death to be drowning, an accident, but Suzan Marshall believes it may have been a homicide. (Young Kwak/The Inlander)

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)

Roy Jackson Water Rights

Roy Jackson

In this photo for an Inlander story about water rights in Washington state, Roy Jackson walks on his property in Spokane County, Wash. The Washington Supreme Court ruled that counties must make sure there’s enough available water before issuing permits for new developments. Many fear this will halt development among property owners, like Jackson, who want to build a home in rural parts of the county. Jackson purchased 10 acres in September 2016 and received a permit to build his house on October 21, 2016, which was right within the deadline set to build new developments due to the state supreme court ruling. Jackson hopes to have his house built sometime in 2018. http://www.inlander.com/spokane/well-wishers/Content?oid=2939934
