AQUEOUS FILM FORMING FOAM: REPORT TO CONGRESS
Department of Defense, Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics, 28 pp, 2017

This report provides information regarding DoD efforts to address contamination by perfluorinated chemicals, commonly referred to as PFASs (per- and polyfluoroalkyl sustances), on military bases and in neighboring communities due to the use of aqueous film forming foam (AFFF). The number of formerly used and current military installations where AFFF was or is currently used is assessed along with the impact of PFAS contaminated drinking water on surrounding communities. Plans are described for prompt community notification of such contamination and the procedures for timely remediation. The appendices contain (A) Number of Installations and Drinking Water Systems Tested for PFOS and PFOA, and Associated Sampling Costs; (B) Summary of Safe Drinking Water Actions Where DoD is the Drinking Water Purveyor and the Systems Tested Above the EPA Lifetime Health Advisory Level; and (C) DoD Installations with a Known or Suspected Release of PFOS or PFOA. https://www.denix.osd.mil/derp/home/documents/aqueous-film-forming-foam-report-to-congress/
