Biddle Air National Guard Base PFOS/PFOA statement

Release Number: 010521

The 111th Attack Wing takes its environmental compliance responsibilities seriously and follows all applicable federal and state laws, which includes open and transparent communication.  We are committed to transparency in our management of PFOS/PFOA-related water issues and maintaining an open dialogue with communities, regulators and other stakeholders.

As a military installation serving Bucks and Montgomery Counties, and the surrounding communities, we have a responsibility to protect and preserve the environment.  We are committed to supporting the state’s PFAS action team and complying with Air National Guard’s guidance for identifying, responding to, and preventing PFOS/PFOA water contamination.

Our families live and work in this community.  We drink the water and fish in the local streams.  This community is our community.  We take this issue very seriously.  The safety of our community is paramount.
