HMAS Albatross PFAS Investigation
Summary of the Investigation
All findings of the investigation are available on the publications page, including detailed reports and factsheets.
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, monitor and reduce the risks of PFAS exposure on, and around, the Base.
On 7 May 2018, as a precautionary measure, the NSW Government recommended that people who frequently catch fish from Currambene Creek limit their weekly intake of certain species.
This precautionary advice was informed by the sampling undertaken by Defence as part of the HMAS Albatross PFAS Environmental Investigation.
