3,800 children attend the Merrimack public schools which have tested positive for the presence of the chemical PFOA. The school board has reviewed research about the impact of this chemical on children and have unanimously concluded that water supplies that children receive drinking and cooking water from should be filtered as a protective and precautionary measure. Ongoing independent water test results have varied in each of the 6 schools with a high of 45 ppt noted. The school board has met with consultants to choose a design that is the most fiscally responsible and has concluded that $128,590 is necessary to fund a water filtration system for all 6 public schools. The school board has recently voted to add this to the proposed annual budget which will be considered this March at the town wide deliberative session. It is the belief of tax payers of Merrimack that this should not be a cost to us but should be paid by the corporation that enjoys the residency of our town and has steadily utilized PFOA in past production for more than a decade.
