Another 37 wells in Bennington have tested positive for the carcinogen perfluorooctanoic acid, state officials said Tuesday.

The Department of Environmental Conservation tested the wells after monitoring wells near the Bennington Landfill revealed the chemical in groundwater at concentrations exceeding the state limit of 20 parts per trillion.

Residents south of the Bennington Landfill who use private drinking wells are being asked, if they have not done so already, to sign up to have their wells tested.
