The Readiness Subcommittee of the House Armed Services committee held a hearing to get an update on cleanup efforts related to water contamination at U.S. military bases linked to a chemical the Department of Defense (DOD) used to fight fires. The DOD created a task force in July 2019 to address the use of Per- and polyfluoroalkyl (PFAS) substances, which are found in Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF) used to quickly put out equipment and military vehicle fires. Military representatives, who are on the PFAS task force, testified about the progress being made on cleanup efforts, coordination between various governmental agencies involved, and research on a safe chemical replacement for PFAS. close
