Robertson Barracks PFAS Investigation


Summary of the Investigation

Robertson Barracks
In August 2018, Defence completed a detailed environmental investigation into the presence of per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) on and in the vicinity of Robertson Barracks.

The investigation determined that the risks of exposure to PFAS are generally low and do not require specific management measures. The findings of the investigation are available on the publications page, including detailed reports and factsheets.

The findings of the investigation were used to develop a PFAS Management Area Plan. This plan will inform the activities Defence will undertake to manage, monitor and reduce the risks of PFAS exposure on, and around, the Base. As part of the Plan, Defence will continue to monitor the concentration and location of PFAS near Robertson Barracks. The Plan is available on the publications page.
