RAAF Base Richmond 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 Richmond.

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.
