NAS Whiting Field Virtual Open House – Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS)
On February 23rd, 2021, the Navy “opened” a virtual open house platform regarding PFAS at NAS Whiting Field. The virtual open house platform can be accessed here:
Consistent with CDC guidelines on social gatherings, the Navy has decided not to hold an in-person open house meeting due to COVID-19. This Virtual Open House platform reflects the Navy’s commitment to keeping the community informed, even with the current limitations to in-person meetings.
The virtual open house platform provides a summary of several topics related to PFAS investigations at and around NAS Whiting Field, including information about:
- the Navy’s PFAS sampling policy,
- previous drinking water sampling,
- current on-base PFAS investigation,
- current off-base drinking water well investigation,
- PFAS and potential health effects and
- the sampling process and timeline.
