THE Department of Defence is holding community walk-in sessions on Thursday, May 18 to provide residents and business owners with an update on the ongoing detailed environmental investigation on, and in the vicinity of, Pearce air base.
The investigation started in May 2016 and is part of the department’s review of a number of its sites around Australia that used firefighting foams containing per and poly-fluoroalkyl substances to understand the extent of PFAS on and near the base.
The community walk-in sessions will provide an opportunity to gather information on the progress of the environmental investigation and ask questions, one-on-one with the department and other key government representatives in attendance.
Held at the Lowery Park Hall on Eden Dr, (off Parkland Pde) in Bullsbrook, two times are on offer to cater for the varying work and family commitments of community members.
The first session will be held between 2pm and 4pm with a presentation at 2.15pm.
The second session will start at 5pm, with a 5.15pm presentation and close at 7pm.
A department spokeswoman said the department appreciates the contributions made by the community during previous information sessions, by completing water use surveys and sharing local knowledge about potential sources of PFAS.
We have included a flyer with the latest details about the investigation.
