  • The Armed Forces do not have to pay substantial damages to Uppsala Water and Waste Ltd after PFAS contaminants were discovered in the city's drinking water.
  • The Land and Environment Court ruled Monday that it is not possible to prove that most of the pollution came from firefighting foam used at a military airfield, which the company had claimed.
  • "We feel sad for our company but mainly for our customers who have to pay the bill for this PFAS contamination," Sigrid De Geyter the CEO of local council-owned Uppsala Vatten tells Radio Sweden.
