PRIVATE DRINKING WATER WELLS TO BE TESTED FOR PFOS AND PFOA
IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR RESIDENTS WITH PRIVATE DRINKING WATER WELLS NEAR THE LAKEHURST NAVAL BASE
The Department of the Air Force is currently conducting sampling of private drinking water wells for perfluoroctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) as part of a sampling program related to Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst (JB MDL) because some on-base groundwater locations on base were found to exceed EPA Health Advisory Levels (HALs) for these two compounds. JB MDL is hand delivering informational packages to approximately 40-50 properties in the southeastern portion of Jackson Township near the JB MDL boundary where they are seeking permission from property owners to sample their drinking water well. Additional information on this sampling program is available on the JB MDL web page: www.jointbasemdl.af.mil/PFCs.
