2017/18 – Townsville RAAF Base (Queensland) – PFAS

Townsville RAAF Base (Queensland) – PFAS


PFAS impact has been identified in surface water, sediment and groundwater off-Base. Based on the findings of the DSI, the following additional works have been triggered and are in progress or planned: —a HHRA and ERA have been commenced to assess potential risk associated with the potentially complete source-pathway-receptor exposure linkages identified in the CSMs —aquatic and semi-aquatic biota sampling in Louisa Creek, Mundy Creek, Three Mile Creek, Bohle River, Rowes Bay and Halifax Bay is being conducted to inform the HHRA and ERA; and—wet season groundwater, surface water and sediment monitoring (pending sufficient rainfall in the IA).
