Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS)

A National Issue that Requires National Solutions

PFAS are man-made chemicals that have been used in industry and consumer products worldwide for decades. There is extensive research being done to determine where these chemicals exist, how they behave, and what impact they have on human health and the environment.



The Department of Defense (DoD) is committed to addressing our releases of PFAS under the federal cleanup laws, and protecting the health of our personnel, their families, and the communities in which we serve.

On this website, you will find general information on PFAS, information on DoD’s PFAS Task Force, and details on DoD’s actions to investigate and cleanup PFAS resulting from DoD activities.
