Cold Bay still on bottled drinking water, 10 months after the wells tested high for 'forever chemicals'
Cold Bay, Alaska, United States
6 Apr 2023
About a year ago, the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation tested Cold Bay’s water wells for PFAS, and the results came back well above the levels recommended for human consumption. Cold Bay closed the wells for drinking when the test results came back, and the Eastern Aleutian community has relied on state-provided bottled water ever since.
