This is the Pentagon’s plan for dealing with toxic chemical contamination on bases | Military Times

A tase force has been  created to address cancer-causing chemicals found in base water sources and has four months to do its research and report back.  The task force on per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances — better known as PFAS ― will meet at least once a monthand report back to Esper with their progress.  The task force is meant to “ensure a coordinated, aggressive and holistic approach on DoD-wide efforts to proactively address PFAS,” according to the document. So far, 297 installations have documented PFAS contamination, specifically perfluorooctanesulfonic acid and perfluorooctanoic acid, two types that the EPA requires the services to monitor.
