Report due by years end on firefighting foams at HMAS Albatross


HMAS Albatross 1

Fairfax Media reports test results on the use of historical firefighting foams should be in by the end of the year at HMAS Albatross.

Contamination as a result of the use of PFAS, PFOS and PFOA has been an ongoing issue at defence bases around Australia and was most recently highlighted on the ABC Four Corners programme this week.

The investigations at Albatross were started in May of last year, community walk-in sessions will be held later in the year to educate residents on the issue.
