The Need for a PFAS Registry
In this episode, AFOS21 Radio Host Kevin Ferrara updates listeners about the ongoing situation at Marine Corps Air Station Futenma, Okinawa and the 60,000 gallons of firefighting agent that was released, contaminating not only the base but the local community.
Kevin then reaches out to listeners, encouraging them to contact their Congressional leaders and ask they move H.R 2195 and S. 1105 otherwise know as the PFAS Registry Act of 2019 forward so those who have been exposed to AFFF and or PFAS can begin to have information collected and shared on a routine basis.
Wrapping up this episode, Kevin talks about how PFAS being incinerated at low temperatures poses a risk of "acid rain" that can potentially contaminate drinking water sources.
