RAAF Base Pearce PFAS Investigation


Summary of the Investigation

In November 2018, Defence completed a detailed environmental investigation into the presence of per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) on and in the vicinity of RAAF Base Pearce.

Investigation Reports and factsheets are available on the publications page. The Ecological Risk Assessment Report is currently being finalised and will be published by the end of November.

Defence is using the findings of the investigation to develop a PFAS Management Area Plan. This plan will inform the activities Defence will undertake to manage and reduce the risks of PFAS exposure on, and around, the Base.
