Current status (January 12, 2018) - To date the US Army has tested thirty-three properties near the former North Penn US Army Reserve Base.

Of the thirty-three properties tested, twenty-one properties tested below the US Environmental Protection Agency's heath advisory limit, four properties tested above this limit, and no trace of the chemicals was detected at eight properties. The Army has reported its findings to the property owners and to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). The Army is currently conducting tests at additional properties. As the property owner the US Army is responsible for any clean-up that may be required by DEP.
