TEST YOUR WATER
While it is well understood that PFAS compounds migrate in groundwater and have already contaminated the Ogallala Aquifer of Eastern New Mexico, virtually no testing has been performed by the Air Force or the State of New Mexico as to the presence of the contaminants in regional water supplies.
CWP - Cannon is working to secure free testing to determine the reach of Air Force PFAS and alert the Air Force to immediately purify affected waters.
BECOME A MEMBER
Join the CWP - Cannon to help those affected by PFAS contamination in Curry and Roosevelt Counties.
The region is coming to terms with the destruction of local agricultural businesses, personal livelihoods, public health and property values and the threats caused by the ongoing flow of these contaminants into regional water resources.
We believe that solutions can be achieved. Join us.

“The Air Force’s top priority is to protect human health and we will continue to work closely with impacted residents and members of the community to ensure concerns are addressed.”

“Eastern New Mexico simply has too much to lose to allow the Defense Department and state leaders to adopt an indifferent or
business-as-usual approach to the PFAS contamination in this region."
US EPA: THe challenges of PFAS Remediation
“Natural attenuation and long-term monitoring is not an effective strategy for PFAS. Active treatment must be used to … contain it so that it cannot leach from contaminated soil into groundwater or drinking water resources.”
