Portsmouth, New Hampshire (NEWS CENTER) -- People in seacoast New Hampshire are pushing the state to monitor people who were exposed to contaminated water at the former Pease Air Force base.
Two years ago, the U-S Air Force discovered high levels of chemicals known as PFC's in a well that supplied drinking water to more than 95-hundred people who work at various businesses on the former base.
The first round of testing of more than 15-hundred people showed the majority had levels of PFC's higher than the general population.
PFC's are a group of manmade chemicals used in household products, including Teflon.
This contamination was caused by firefighting foam, which was used on the base for 30 years.
This is video of a Air Force firefighters using foam at on an aircraft that was on fire at Pease on the runway near the Haven well.
That well was shut down after officials found levels were 12-times higher than standards set by the E-P-A.
The base is considered a "superfund" site and has been the focus of a toxic clean-up for decades.
Last week, officials gave the public a bus tour of the clean up hot spots - like this fire training area - which are targeted clean-up areas.
Andrea Amico's husband works at Pease, and her 2 kids attend daycare there -- and they all have elevated levels of PFC.
State health officials say long-term health effects of PFC are unknown, but the Amico think the people who drank the contaminated water should be monitored.
New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services are offering another round of free blood testing to people who drank the contaminated water at Pease.
