Letter: Blame for contamination may not be so clear

Editor,

An article published recently in The Associated Press shows that it just might not be all the Navy’s fault for groundwater contamination with PFAs.

The article titled, “Concerns grow over tainted sewage sludge spread on croplands,” written by John Flesher and Michael Casey, sheds light on a practice that is used all over the nation. The article was published on Sept. 12.

Whidbey Island has been spreading this type of fertilizer on farm fields all over for decades.
