State says North Pole water is safe to drink

Posted: Friday, January 22, 2010

FAIRBANKS - North Pole's water has been deemed OK to drink.

State officials say wells feeding the city water system have only trace amounts of the industrial chemical sulfolane, so there is no public emergency.

The city's wells are deeper than most private wells, which have detected higher levels of the chemical used in fuel production.
