Homeowners Offered Bottled Water After Elevated PFAS Levels Found Near La Crosse Airport
Dozens of homeowners near the La Crosse airport are being offered bottled water after testing of private wells showed concerning levels of PFAS contamination. Nine wells had levels of the chemicals 50 times higher than the state’s recommended groundwater standard for the so-called “forever chemicals.”
The findings are part of well and groundwater sampling that began in October within the Town of Campbell near the La Crosse Regional Airport on French Island. The La Crosse Fire Department tested firefighting foam containing PFAS at burn pits on the site from the 1970s to the 1980s.
The results were reported Tuesday evening by the city’s environmental consultant, the OS Group, as part of an investigation into PFAS contamination at the airport. The investigation began after the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources flagged two city wells for the presence of PFAS last year, which are no longer being used.
More than one-third of wells tested last fall — 40 of 109 private wells — showed PFAS levels above the state’s recommended groundwater standard of 20 parts per trillion. That’s roughly the equivalent of 20 drops of water in an Olympic-sized swimming pool. The city has offered $25,000 worth of bottled water to households with elevated PFAS levels until a permanent solution is in place, according to the La Crosse Tribune.
“I would like to believe that we’ve acted as quickly as possible since October to get testing done to get results back and to get safe water to those people that have exceeded that 20 parts per trillion,” said La Crosse Mayor Tim Kabat.
The highest levels recorded were around 3,200 parts per trillion, according to John Storlie, the city’s consultant with the OS Group. He said test results are still pending on 14 samples.
“Bottled water has been recommended by the (Department of Health Services) and by us to the residents for drinking, cooking purposes and brushing teeth,” said Storlie.
Curtis Hedman, a toxicologist with the state Department of Health Services, also advised residents not to use water with elevated PFAS levels to grow food.
Bottled water has been provided to 32 homes with PFAS contamination. Four homes either declined or didn’t respond to offers of bottled water, and four wells were not a source of drinking water.
Perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances, commonly referred to as PFAS, have raised concerns because they don’t break down easily in the environment. The so-called forever chemicals are found in firefighting foam and everyday products. Studies have linked the chemicals to thyroid disease, reproductive health issues and kidney and testicular cancers.
The city’s consultant plans to resample around 10 wells that tested just below the state’s recommended standard. Storlie said they also plan to send letters this week to about 50 residents to conduct sampling in an expanded area around the airport.

Storlie noted the best way for residents to deal with contamination is to treat the water or connect to the La Crosse public water supply. La Crosse’s mayor said the city council will discuss next steps on Thursday and options to provide clean drinking water to those residents, including the potential for providing city water to private well owners.
Bernard Lenz, the city’s water utility manager, highlighted that the Public Service Commission would have to sign off on any agreement for the city to provide water to residents in the Town of Campbell.
The La Crosse Regional Airport is currently required to store firefighting foam containing PFAS as part of Federal Aviation Administration regulations, according to airport director Ian Turner. Turner said the airport has “all but eliminated” the foam, which would only be used in emergencies. The FAA is required to come up with an alternative to PFAS-containing foam by October of this year.
The DNR said at least three towns in Wisconsin have residents who are now receiving bottled water due to PFAS contamination including the Towns of Peshtigo, Campbell and Newton. Environmental regulators are monitoring more than 50 sites with PFAS contamination across the state.
The Peshtigo and Marinette area in northeastern Wisconsin is the focus of the state’s largest, most complex investigation into PFAS contamination stemming from a Tyco Fire Products fire training facility. Tyco’s parent company Johnson Controls International has been providing bottled water to around 130 residents since 2017.
Last week, Peshtigo residents reached a $17.5 million class action settlement with Tyco over their exposure to PFAS in drinking water. La Crosse’s mayor said he would be interested in joining residents or others to sue the manufacturers of PFAS-containing foam so people could be compensated for any losses.
Testing has also showed PFAS contamination at the Dane County Regional Airport in Madison. A report filed with regulators last month showed levels of PFOA in groundwater as high as 67,300 parts per trillion at one sampling location, which also found PFOS levels of 1,360 parts per trillion. The airport was also the site of burn pits used for firefighter training.
City leaders in Madison have emphasized that groundwater contamination at the airport isn’t tied to the source of the city’s drinking water. But, the city shut down one well after the Madison water utility found traces of the chemical in every city well, according to the Wisconsin State Journal.
Surface water sampling has also found traces of the chemicals at Mitchell International Airport in Milwaukee.
The DNR has been working to craft standards for PFAS in drinking water, surface water and groundwater. No federal standards exist for PFAS although the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has set a health advisory level of 70 parts per trillion for PFOA and PFOS.
The DNR released its proposed plan for addressing PFAS chemicals in December, which includes a recommendation to test all public water supplies in Wisconsin.

Educate yourself and become part of the solution. Simple changes reduce polluted runoff to La Crosse area waters.
Wash your vehicle in the grass or at a car wash
Park your car in the yard so the water can soak in and be naturally filtered. Better yet, take your car to a car wash where the wastewater is treated.
Keep grass and leaves out of the street
Yard waste in streets eventually ends up in a local river. It brings nitrogen with it and clouds water, reduces stream depth and damages habitat.
Pick up pet waste
Clean up pet waste often at home to avoid harmful bacteria soaking into the ground water. When walking your dog, put their waste in a plastic bag, and in the garbage.
Stop using salt in winter
When removing ice from driveways and sidewalks, use a calcium magnesium acetate (CMA) deicer. This is about as corrosive as tap water, safe for concrete, biodegradable and requires fewer applications.
Shape land to soak up water
Build a rain garden, biofilter, or berm to capture and soak up water from downspouts, roofs, streets, parking lots, sidewalks and driveways before it can move pollutants to streams.
Plant native trees and plants
Trees and deep rooted native plants keep soil in place, absorb water and help rain soak into the soil. This prevent erosion and holds runoff. They also come back year after year.
Rainwater and snowmelt move soil, sand and pollutants to streams. Capture water in rain barrels, rain gardens, cisterns and ponds. Use it in your garden or home.
Minimize hard surfaces
Roofs, patios and driveways move water fast, carrying soil, sand and pollutants to streams. Pave less. When you do pave, use gravel, stone, well-spaced bricks, or porous pavers, concrete, or asphalt.
Wisconsin to give water to French Island homes with elevated PFAS
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services issued an area-wide drinking water advisory Thursday for an island near La Crosse battling a “forever chemical” contamination.
The DHS, along with the Department of Natural Resources, the Wisconsin Air National Guard and Wisconsin Emergency Management is working to provide bottled water to all residents on French Island due to elevated levels of PFAS in private drinking wells. The water will be paid for by the DNR, but the five-gallon bottles will be delivered and refilled by Culligan, officials said. Schools, commercial businesses, bars and churches will not be eligible for the water provided by DNR.
The advisory will last at least 90 days, if not longer.
The chemicals being found in drinking water across the island are likely the result of the use of PFAS-containing firefighting foam, used at the La Crosse Regional Airport for decades. PFAS were first detected on the island in 2014 in La Crosse municipal wells, and testing of private wells began late last year.
The airport inhabits the northern portion of the island, while the Town of Campbell inhabits the southern portion. French Island is across the Black River from the city and is home to about 4,300 residents. There are 1,200 private wells on the island.
Kelsey Craig, who lives within the testing area but whose well had tested below the recommended limit, has asked the city for water before but was denied by the city. Since then, she’s been filling 15-gallon jugs of water each week at the grocery store, so that her two young children don’t have to drink water out of the tap and she isn’t cooking with contaminated water.
She was excited to hear the news that she’ll now have access to water provided by the state.
“I think it’s excellent,” she said. “It’s about time.”
So far, the city has tested more than 120 wells. Of those, 40 had levels of PFAS over the state’s recommended limit and another 65 wells tested positive, but below the limit. The city is still waiting on results from some wells. The city is currently providing bottled water to 54 homes, and will continue to provide water those residences.
The DNR has data from several well tests paid for by residents outside of the plume of contamination the city has set, said Darsi Foss, administrator of the DNR’s environmental management division, during a news conference Thursday. The agency is aware of 185 samples taken on the island, all but one of which have shown levels of PFAS, she said. Levels exceed the state’s limit in 61 wells. The DNR is waiting on results to come back from 90 other wells.
The DNR will also conduct more sampling on the island, in an attempt to see how wide the footprint of the contamination is, Foss said. The bottled water and testing will be paid for by the DNR, but the agency could potentially seek repayment after the establishment of a responsible party.
PFAS, or per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, are a family of man-made chemicals used for their water- and stain-resistant qualities in products like clothing and carpet, nonstick cookware, packaging and firefighting foam. The family includes 5,000 compounds, which are persistent, remaining both in the environment and human body over time.
The chemicals can have devastating effects. They’ve been linked to types of kidney and testicular cancers, lower birth weights, harm to immune and reproductive systems, altered hormone regulation and altered thyroid hormones. The chemicals enter the human body largely through drinking water.

La Crosse will continue to provide water to residents within the investigation area, but residents outside of the investigation area will be eligible to receive water provided by the DNR. The city will also continue to investigate contamination from the airport and several airplane crashes in which foam was used, and how far the contamination could have spread over the years.
Residents outside of the current testing area and those with PFAS at levels below the recommended limit have been requesting bottled water for months, only to be denied by the city. In November, the DNR recommended extending the offer of bottled water to all residents whose wells tested positive for PFAS, but La Crosse mayor Tim Kabat denied the request, according to emails obtained through an open records request.
Other emails indicated Kabat didn’t want to spend more than the planned $100,000 for providing the bottled water, and extending water to more residents would have raised the cost to $200,000 or $250,000.
So far, Kabat said, the city has spent nearly $500,000 on testing and providing water to residents.
Local companies have also taken notice of the community’s struggle for clean water. According to a Facebook post by the Town of Campbell, Kwik Trip, Hyvee and CVS are providing residents with bottled water, distributing it to residents who aren’t already receiving it. The water will be passed out from 3 to 6 p.m. Thursday evening at Olivet Lutheran Church and the Days Inn.
No long-term solution has yet been identified to provide safe water to residents on the island, but solutions such as treatment systems in each home and an extension of city water to the island have been suggested. Christine Haag, the director of the remediation and redevelopment program for the DNR, said that additional testing will help to determine what type of solution fits best.
“There’s not a quick solution to this, it’s complicated,” she said during a Thursday morning press conference.
While still testing wells, the city is also seeking to hold accountable the companies who manufactured the firefighting foam sold to the airport over the last several decades, including Marinette-based Tyco Fire Products. A lawsuit was filed in early March, listing more than 20 manufacturers.
The lawsuit will likely take years to work its way to a resolution or settlement, but the funds could be used to help the city pay for long-term solutions.
The DNR plans to hold a community information session in mid-April, according to officials.

DNR issues drinking water advisory to French Island residents
MADISON/LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and Department of Health Services have issued an interim area-wide drinking water advisory for French Island residents due to concerns over PFAS in the water.
The DNR cited the potential health risks in issuing the advisory.
They plan to outline some of the other steps they’re taking at a virtual information session Thursday night (3/25) at 6:30 p.m.
Here is the link for the evening information session: https://youtu. be/kz-29ndUMCI
With the advisory, the DNR said that people who currently aren’t receiving bottled water from the City of La Crosse are eligible for DNR-provided bottled water. The water would be supplied by Culligan through a DNR contract. Delivery of the water would be in five gallon containers.
People who want to request water from the DNR are asked to fill out a form which you can find here.
When complete, the form should be sent here:
Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources
c/o Jenna Soyer – RR/5
P.O. Box 7923
Madison, WI 53703
Email: [email protected]
Water could be delivered in the coming week once the form is filled out.

The DNR is also gathering information over the next three months regarding well testing. In a statement, the DNR said it was working on a sampling plan for the private wells on French Island. It said that based on the results, they would determine whether to modify the existing drinking water advisory they issued today (3/25). The DNR and its contractor, Wood Environmental, plan to contact selected residents for well access for sampling.
The DNR said the City of La Crosse is providing approximately 54 residents with bottled water. There are approximately 4,300 residents and 1,200 private wells in the Town of Campbell according to the DNR. Wells are used rather than a municipal water system for residents.
The city began supplying water after testing showed that the man-made PFAS chemicals spread from the La Crosse airport where the chemicals were used in firefighting foam.
“The city is conducting a site investigation of several PFAS areas on the airport property such as crash sites, and areas where PFAS foam was tested or trained with,” said Darsi Foss, administrator for environmental management at the DNR. “We know that PFAS contamination is present in soil and groundwater and we know that the groundwater has migrated off-site into neighboring areas to the South and Southeast of the airport. “
Foss said all well samples that the city provided to the DNR, except one, have detections of PFAS. From those samples and others that residents have taken, the DNR and DHS are aware of 185 different wells on French Island with PFAS contamination related results.
“The ground water investigation is still on-going by the city. DNR and DHS will continue to work with the residents of French Island, town, city, and county officials to aid them in providing emergency safe drinking water to address these concerns. As well as ultimately identify the sources of PFAS on the island and to take actions to provide permanent water and the clean-up of ground water contamination,” said Foss.
Dr. Curtis Hedman, a toxicologist in the hazard assessment section at the Wisconsin DHS said that the DHS agrees with the DNR that the extent of PFAS contamination on French Island is currently undetermined and therefore justifies the area wide drinking water advisory.
“This advisory allows the state to take actions to provide drinking water supply in order to prevent potential PFAS exposures among French Island households,” said Hedman.
The next step is the DNR will provide five gallon water containers to any private water supply resident. If they aren’t already receiving water from the city, they can request it from the DNR by turning in a form on their website. Residents can also get the forms at the Town Hall. The DNR and it’s contractor will also conduct further testing. The DNR will select those wells and it may take up to 90 days.
“It’s sometimes an art and a science on how to find where this ground water contamination is and where it’s moving so it won’t always be self evident on where to sample but we will do our best right now to get a general overview of where we think the contamination has moved to,” said Foss.
The funding for these samples is coming from the Wisconsin DNR. Foss said it could be $200,000 or more depending on how long they have to provide water.
“The Department of Natural Resources has funds available when there is unknown or unwilling or unable situations where contamination has occurred. We do have legal authority and funds available to take a step forward and to address situations like this,” said Foss.
Dr. Hedman said they are working to provide a long term fix for French Island residents. He encourages citizens to reach out to the DHS with questions and concerns. These samples being taken will help them determine if a long-term solution is necessary.
“I don’t think we are quite there yet or what that might be,” said Christine Haag, Remediation and Redevelopment Program Director at the DNR. “I can say from our experience in Marinette that it’s not a quick fix. there’s not a quick solution to this. It’s complicated but the department is committed to working with the town, the city, and residents to understand if that solution is necessary and then to work quickly to get that implemented.”
Haag explained that the city of La Crosse is the party responsible for the contamination.
“They are legally responsible for defining the degree and the extent of that contamination, taking whatever interim actions are needed to halt the contamination, and then implementing an action that restores the environment to the extent practicable,” said Haag.
She said the DNR is not taking over what the city is already doing, rather they are supplementing this to help out the residents impacted.

LaCrosse Water Plant, Dollar Store Plans Could Benefit from Property Donation from North Judson – WKVI Information Center
How the Town of North Judson could help bring a new water treatment plant and dollar store to LaCrosse was discussed during Tuesday’s North Judson Town Council meeting. LaCrosse Town Council President Justin Kiel asked if North Judson would be willing to donate a piece of abandoned railroad right of way.
It lies between the town’s current water plant and the proposed location for the new one. Plans currently call for water lines to be routed around that property, but LaCrosse would be able to save some money if it could simply cut across.
On top of that, Kiel said LaCrosse has been working for several years to redevelop the northwest corner of U.S. 421 and State Road 8. Specifically, the town and the landowners hope to attract a dollar store. Kiel said having the neighboring railroad right of way would give the developer a little more space and make it easier to install utility lines.
None of the North Judson Town Council members expressed opposition to the idea, but President John Rowe asked if LaCrosse might be willing to offer something in exchange. “Like a couple truckloads of salt or sand or something we could use for our utility department,” Rowe said. “I don’t know how that plays into that, but something, you know.”
He also wondered if the potential dollar store would be willing to pay North Judson for that portion of the land.
However, it isn’t entirely clear if North Judson even owns all of the property in question. LaPorte County’s GIS map lists CSX Transportation as the owner of the portion near the water plant, although officials think it was likely transferred to North Judson when it acquired its railroad. North Judson Clerk-Treasurer Andrew Rowe hoped that the two appraisals that the town is currently commissioning might settle that issue.
The Town of LaCrosse is hoping for a decision from North Judson this fall.
2016 Buick LaCrosse Water Pump Replacement Prices & Cost Estimates
Buick Water Pump Replacement Questions & Answers
How much does a new water pump cost for a Buick?
The cost of replacing the water pump on your Buick depends on the model. The age of your car could affect the cost as well.
In addition, there are two types of water pumps: belt-driven and electric. Typical belt-driven water pumps aren’t that expensive, but electric ones can get pricey, which will obviously drive up the cost. Your Buick owner’s manual should be able to tell you which kind you have.
Another thing to keep in mind is that some water pumps are easier to get to than others. The more your engine needs to be disassembled to access the water pump, the higher the labor costs.
Taking all these points into consideration, you can expect to pay anywhere from $XXX to $XXX. Of course, shopping around to get a few quotes is your best bet to get the best deal.
For more water pump information, read our article Does My Car Need a New Water Pump?
What are the symptoms of a bad water pump for a Buick?
Modern Buick water pumps are pretty robust. They can take a lickin’ and keep on tickin’ for many years. But there’s still a chance they can fail.
Typically, a bearing on the pump may go bad or the pump develops a leak. If so, this can cause serious damage to your car’s engine. Luckily, there are a few ways to know that your water pump may be failing:
- Puddles of green coolant on the ground
- High-temperature readings from the water temperature gauge
- A low-pitched grinding sound from the engine
- Water leaks from the front of the engine
If you notice any of these symptoms, see your Buick mechanic as soon as you can before your water pump fails altogether.
The water pump on my Buick is leaking. What do I do?
If the water pump on your Buick is leaking, you have an issue. How major of an issue depends on the severity of the leak.
Water pumps typically leak from two different places: the shaft seal or the water pump gasket. Either way, there is something wrong and your water pump needs to be replaced.
There are some stop-leak products out there that you pour directly into your radiator that can (possibly) seal or slow the leak. If you go this route, keep in mind these products are only a temporary fix and not a permanent solution.
In short, if your water pump is leaking, we recommend taking it to your Buick mechanic to have it replaced. Your engine will thank you.
How do you replace the water pump on a Buick?
Replacing the water pump on your Buick can either be a simple effort or a long, difficult process. It all depends on your model, it’s age, and where the water pump is located.
On some engines, the water pump is easily accessible. On others, it can be hidden under a tangle of other engine components. If that’s the case you, may need to remove the radiator, hoses, pulleys and a myriad of other parts to get to it. You might even need special tools for the job.
If you’re a competent DIY-er and your water pump is more readily accessible, it is possible to replace your own water pump. But to be on the safe side, replacing a water pump is a job usually best left to a professional Buick mechanic.
What are the signs of water pump failure for a Buick?
Your water pump is the heart of your engine’s cooling system, constantly circulating fluid throughout your engine keeping everything running smoothly. If it fails, you’ve got a problem.
When the water pump on your Buick starts to go, look for these signs:
- Puddles of green coolant on the ground
- High-temperature readings from the water temperature gauge
- A low-pitched grinding sound from the engine
- Water leaks from the front of the engine
Now, if your water pump fails altogether, the signs to look for are:
- Smoke or steam coming from your radiator
- Engine overheating
- Irregular temperature gauge
When your water pump fails, no coolant is circulating, allowing your engine to heat up very quickly. This will cause your engine to overheat, and you don’t want to get to that point.
So when you notice the first signs of possible water pump failure, we recommend taking it to your Buick mechanic right away and getting it replaced.
90,000 Crosby tried to repeat Svechnikov’s lacrosse – Shesterkin interfered. The Rangers are confident in dealing with Pittsburgh – NHL Entertainment – Blogs
Although Sydney scored like that at 16.
Rangers unexpectedly calmly took the scandal with Tony Deangelo: they went to the match with Pittsburgh and without too much fuss overpowered the competitor in the division.
“Our team is ready to move on. We are ready to move on. There was an incident. We sorted it out.The fact is that Tony was unable to draw conclusions after he was previously sent to the reserve. He tried to deal with it. I spoke to him then, and told him: “If there are still problems, the time will come when we will put you on the draft refusals, and the team will move on. No more problems. If we hear your name again in the appropriate context, we will have to take action and move on. ”
I told him directly about it. And then there was an episode on Saturday. I have to keep my word on behalf of the club.
It’s time to move on. That’s all. We think we’re doing the right thing with Tony. We strive for victories, and this step will help us move in this direction ”, – shared his thoughts the general manager of the club Jeff Gorton.
Without Deangelo, the Rangers’ defense did not fall apart – Shesterkin and the field managed to hold back Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. However, sometimes I had to go to the goal and throw at the puck.

Artemiy Panarin has a successful match: he made two assists, scored a goal in the blanks and became one of the best players who were not selected in the NHL draft. The winning puck was hammered by Chris Crider – polyglot, rocking fan and Rangers soul. An important number was also not without – Krider is now in second place in goals among Americans who played for the main hockey team in New York.
Igor Shesterkin has a great day too – he pulled 25 shots and was ready to take Sidney Crosby’s lacrosse.Yes, one of the most inventive strikers in the history of the game decided to repeat Andrey Svechnikov’s trick – unfortunately, the puck flew off the hook a little and the Pittsburgh captain was left without a masterpiece. However, Shesterkin, judging by the stand, was expecting this threat – he tried to close the upper corner as much as possible.

Crosby has not scored a lacrosse goal since playing for Rimuski in the Quebec Junior League.Here, look at the beauty – it’s been almost 18 years!
“I like this guy. I see how he plays and all that. But I saw him now, after the heads. He slides on the ice on his knees … “, – Don Cherry criticized the celebrations and tricks of Crosby in the next issue of” Coach’s Corner “, calling the player a hot dog.
So Shesterkin is on a par with the star of the hockey TV – it is quite possible that Crosby will again abandon lacrosse in favor of more effective methods of hitting the opponent’s goal.

When Roman Lyubimov just moved to “Spartak”, he was considered “Znarka’s man.”Under the leadership of the current head coach of the red and white, this striker was called up to the Russian national team and even played at the only world championship for himself. Since that World Cup 2016 in Moscow, a lot of water has flown under the bridge, but Oleg Valerievich believed in Lyubimov . However, already in mid-October, the newcomer of “Spartak” was on the list of refusals. An atypical situation for a coach who is devoted to those who fought for him. But no less surprising than the trip to the Major League itself was Lyubimov’s return to Spartak.
After three matches for the farm club, Roman played for another month under the leadership of Znark, and even scored two goals during this segment. Now the 28-year-old striker is moving under the wing of another coach he knows well. With Dmitry Kvartalnovym Lyubimov not only made it to the Gagarin Cup final, but also came out next to Alexander Radulov in the first line of CSKA. Actually, following the results of that playoffs, Znarok noticed Lyubimov and Ivan Telegin, inviting both of them to the home world championship.In Kazan, Roman is not waiting for either Radulov or the first link. But to become a useful player in the rotation, adding experience to the young team, he can do it.
From Avtomobilist to Salavat Yulaev
Jeff Platt also played for the same CSKA, which in 2016 just a little was not enough to win the Gagarin Cup. Moreover, a Canadian with a Belarusian passport was one of the best scorers in the Moscow army. However, the past merits of 35-year-old striker Dmitry Kvartalnov were not deceived.Platt went not to Ak Bars, to the camp of his principal rival in the Green Derby. The Ufa leadership was not embarrassed either by Jeff’s age, or by the statistics that collapsed downward, or by the fact that Avtomobilist de facto made him an extreme. The expulsion of Platt was the most striking reaction of the Urals to the recent streak of ten defeats in a row.
However, Platt also has obvious advantages. Firstly, thanks to his Belarusian passport, he is not considered a legionnaire. Secondly, even without gaining 30-40 points per season, he can be useful to his team and extremely inconvenient for his rivals.In the art of subcutaneous play, Jeff still has few peers in the entire KHL. He played his debut match for Salavat Yulaev in the third line with Dmitry Kugryshev and Mikhail Vorobyov . That is, in place of Rodion Amirov, who is now preparing for the World Youth Championship. And in the first match Platt scored a goal! And, which is symbolic, at the gates of the Minsk “Dynamo” – the club from which his Kahaelov’s career began.
Vladislav and Vyacheslav Ushenins
From Amur to Siberia
The history of the KHL remembers three bundles of twin brothers. Alshevskie now play in the VHL for “Neftyanik” from Almetyevsk. Streltsovs compete in the same league: Vasily and Alexander recently moved from Krasnoyarsk to Perm. But Permians Ushenins spent almost their entire Kakhael career at Amur. Having landed in Vladivostok in 2014, they moved to neighboring Khabarovsk a year later, where they quickly became their own. Last season was the best for Vyacheslav and Vladislav in all five years of playing for Amur.In the summer they signed new contracts with the Tigers, but … Something went wrong.
Either the brothers sat in one place, or they did not work together with Sergei Svetlov . One way or another, nine points for two, of which only three goals, is negligible for the team leaders. First, the new management of “Amur” sent them to the list of refusals, and then completely terminated the contracts. For a long time without work Ushenins did not sit, and at the end of last week signed with Siberia. And already on Tuesday they made their debut for the new club in the match with … Amur.According to the law of the genre, they upset their former teammates. Vyacheslav Ushenin’s goal ended up winning. It is interesting that the twin brothers took to the ice together with Oleg Li, with whom they had already played in the same section.
From Dynamo Riga to Spartak
When in the offseason Dynamo Riga was actively strengthened by Russian newcomers, it was not difficult to follow one pattern. Stanislav Galimov , Ilya Proskuryakov , Denis Parshin – all of them in the recent past have already worked under the direction of Peteris Skudra .The exception was Pavel Chernov . He, who had never crossed paths with Skudra before, was considered for the role of the leading center. And he started well, in general: the first goal in the first match on the Latvian ice. And in the home game with Dinamo Minsk Chernov scored two points. But in general, this season cannot be called successful for Pavel. As, however, and for the entire Riga team. How could the thirty-year-old striker be able to interest Spartak? Whatever one may say, Pavel is an experienced two-way center, playing well on face-offs.The urgent need for it among the red and white people arose due to the injury of Yori Lehter. The rookie will not replace Spartak’s top scorer in the first line, but he will help to avoid an acute shortage of central strikers.
From Chemist (VHL) to Spartak
Spartak raised their top scorer from their farm club. The usual, in general, procedure, but only when the player already has a bilateral agreement. Pavel Medvedev played for Chemist on a unilateral contract.This means that in order to play in the KHL for the first time since 2017, the attacker had to make a full transfer. He will continue to be able to play for the team from Voskresensk, but only if Spartak sends him to the Higher League. The pupil of the club tried on the red and white uniform after more than six years of traveling around the country. Over the years, Medvedev has become famous as almost the country’s leading lacrosse goalscorer. Such washers are most often called by the name of Mikael Granlund , and more recently Andrei Svechnikov .However, Paul first scored in such an unusual way, when the names of neither one nor the other had not yet thundered all over the world. The forward made his debut lacrosse in 2009 for the Spartak youth team. In 2015, he repeated the trick in the KHL for Ugra. And in the current season Medvedev put three such pucks behind the collar of the goalkeepers! So in the first match after returning to Spartak, he tried to perform his favorite technique, but Timur Bilyalov from Ak Bars was on the alert.
