Air Force cited for groundwater contamination at base in New Mexico | Air Force Times

The New Mexico Environment Department has issued a notice of violation to the U.S. Air Force for failing to properly address groundwater contamination at a base near Clovis.

Chemicals associated with firefighting foam once used at Cannon Air Force Base have been detected in groundwater on and near the military installation.

That has prompted requests by state officials for more tests and a study to determine the extent of the toxic plume.

Environment Department officials announced Tuesday that it is requiring swift action from the base to comply with specific requirements of state law to protect human health and the environment.
