We know that the Truax Air National Guard base is a major source of PFAS contamination – causing one of Madison’s wells to be shut down. We also know they are beginning a major construction there, much of it to accommodate the F-35 fighter jets. Demand a halt to all construction until the entire site is tested for PFAS!
In addition to the #PFASFree Action items below, Safe Skies Clean Water WI asks you to contact your Dane County Supervisor and urge them to co-sponsor 2021 RES-088 demanding action and transparency about PFAS contamination relating to construction at Truax.
