The Department of the Air Force is currently conducting sampling of private drinking

water wells for perfluoroctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA)

as part of a sampling program related to Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst (JB MDL)

because some on-base groundwater locations on base were found to exceed EPA Health

Advisory Levels (HALs) for these two compounds. JB MDL hand delivered

informational packages and a well sampling permission form to residents in certain areas

near the JB MDL boundary where they are seeking permission from property owners to

sample their drinking water well. There are currently no concerns for the Residents

of North Hanover. Additional information on this sampling program is available on the

JB MDL web page: www.jointbasemdl.af.mil/PFCs.
