The first stage of the investigation, the Preliminary Site Investigation (PSI), has been completed.
Detailed Site Investigation
Sampling for the Detailed Site Investigation is currently underway on-base and in the surrounding region. The DSI will involve sampling of soil, sediments, groundwater and surface water. A detailed report will be prepared and shared with relevant government and regulatory bodies as well as the community. The DSI is expected to be complete in mid 2018.
Human Health and Ecological Risk Assessment
The DSI findings will be used to inform the requirement to conduct a Human Health and Ecological Risk Assessments (HHERA). The HHERA will evaluate potential exposure pathways to people, plants and animals and will be used to inform actions to reduce PFAS exposure, if required.
