Air Force agrees to pay for Airway Heights drinking water

AIRWAY HEIGHTS, Wash. - The Air Force has agreed to cover the cost of drinking water for Airway Heights, in an agreement effective November 1.

The agreement is to help the city in light of the recent water contamination crisis that caused certain city wells to close due to Perfluorooctanesulfonate (PFOS) and Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) contamination.

The Air Force has agreed to pay the city for its cost to purchase up to 439.08 million gallons of drinking water, at an estimated cost of more than $687,000 over the next year.
