Current status (March 16, 2018) - To date the US Army has tested thirty-four properties near the former North Penn US Army Reserve Base. The Army tested for the presence of PFOS and PFOA, chemicals that were used during firefighting training exercises at the property many years ago. Of the thirty-four properties tested, twenty-two 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). As the property owner the US Army is responsible for any clean-up that may be required by DEP.
