  • The HSRWA is the alternative being considered for properties affected by the Wurtsmith Air Force Base plume.
  • The HSRWA was sampled by DEQ staff in December 2015.
  • Sample results confirmed the presence of PFOA.
  • Sampling was repeated by the DEQ in June, July, August, September, and October 2016; and the public was notified. Results were consistently below 70 ppt for PFOS and PFOA.
