Bridgette Swaney and her daughter, Addison, 4, use the last of their bottled water to make mint tea at their Widefield home Thursday, Oct. 6, 2016. High levels of perfluorinated compounds, believed to be from a firefighting foam used at Peterson Air Force Base, have been found in the water systems of Security, Widefield and Fountain, forcing residents to drink bottled water. Swaney worries about the toxic chemicals that have been associated with kidney and testicular cancer as well as thyroid disease.
