PFOS/PFOA Fact Sheets

Kyle Dermantis, water restoration plant operator, performs diagnostic checks on water restoration infrastructure and monitors the water treatment process at Shaw Air Force Base, S.C., April 13, 2023. To ensure the health and safety of the local community, U.S. Air Force civil engineers at Shaw proactively seek out private water sources near the base to collect samples and offer bottled water services or connect affected communities to a privately run water system off base if the levels of PFAS, or perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances, exceed a certain threshold.
