El Paso County holding town hall to discuss contaminated Air Force Academy water

After high levels of toxic chemical pollutants were found in groundwater at the Air Force Academy last month, El Paso County said Wednesday that a town hall would be held Thursday to discuss the situation.

The announcement came about two weeks after the academy released a 15,000-page report showing that groundwater flowing into Monument Creek had been contaminated by toxic perfluorinated chemicals.

A county news release invited residents to a town hall at 6:30 p.m. Thursday in Woodmen Valley Chapel, 290 E. Woodmen Road, to discuss the contamination. The meeting will be in the lower level Community Worship Center on the east side of the complex.

About 30 domestic or household wells exist within one mile downstream of the academy, according to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.
