NM Environment Dep't issued a compliance order for unlawfully discharging wastewater without permit at Cannon Air Force Base since April 1, 2019. “The Air Force ignores NM’s environmental laws,” said Sec. James Kenney. “Rather than address PFAS contamination, DoD shows no interest in helping afflicted communities for PFAS contaminated groundwater.'

In January 19, Air Force sued NMED after the department issued a notice of violation for contamination of groundwater. In 3/2019, NMED and the New Mexico Office of the Attorney General filed a complaint in federal district court to compel the Air Force to cleanup PFAS contamination at both Cannon and Holloman Air Force Base.

NMED now asks the Air Force to pay $1.7 million in civil penalties and submit a discharge permit application. The department said it may assess penalties of up to $25K per day for “continued noncompliance.”

This article proves what a good job Attorney General Balderas is doing.


A lot of prior AG's, almost all of them, excepting also the present US Senator, Tom Udall, former AG of NM~~~>a lot of them would do absolutely nothing like this, I suppose out of fear of rocking the boat or putting the big handouts from the Department of Defense in jeopardy.

President Donald Trump threatened to veto a bill over language that would have required action on PFAS contamination.President Donald Trump threatened to veto???The guy is clueless. How would he even care to have any discernment about water pollution anywhere? He is merely a tool - with the ever present Stephen Mnuchin whispering in his ear. In fact Mnuchin is whispering in lots of folks ears when it comes to protecting the wealthy's money supply.
