Health Department Meeting May 30 to Discuss PFAS Testing on Residents
The Pennsylvania Department of Health will hold an open informational meeting May 30, at the Horsham Township Library, 435 Babylon Road in Horsham, immediately following the Willow Grove Air Station Restoration Advisory Board (RAB) meeting at 6 p.m.

They will discuss the progress of their PEATT Pilot Study on PFAS testing on residents in Bucks and Montgomery counties who have been previously exposed to contaminated drinking water supplies up until July of 2016. This is in response to residents’ requests to have their blood tested for PFAS chemicals. The meeting is open to the entire community.

The Willow Grove Air Station Restoration Advisory Board (RAB) will discuss the ongoing environmental issues and cleanup of the former Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Willow Grove, and the Horsham Air Guard Station (HAGS) former Air Force Reserve Station (ARS), Willow Grove.

The former Naval Air Warfare Center in Warminster and the Horsham Air Guard Station in Horsham conducted military training exercises for decades using aqueous film-forming foam in firefighter training activities. This foam contained PFAS and contaminated the drinking water supplies in the area.
