Seaplane Base On-Base PFAS Investigation




Across the country, the Navy has been conducting base-wide evaluations to identify additional potential PFAS releases. These evaluations are being conducted under the Navy’s Environmental Restoration Program which meets the requirements of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA). Following CERCLA, the Navy’s base-wide assessments are called preliminary assessments/site inspections, and their purpose is to verify, validate, and update the inventory of PFAS release sites aboard the installation for further investigation and cleanup.


At NAS Whidbey Island, the Navy has completed preliminary assessment for the Seaplane Base. The PA identified two sites with potential PFAS releases. A site inspection (SI) was conducted in April 2021 to determine the presence or absence of PFAS in the soil and/or groundwater at potential PFAS release sites. The final SI Sampling and Analysis Plan is available for download below. The SI Report is under development. More information will be added to this website as it is available.
