PFAS Preliminary Investigation Report

6 August 2018

In April 2018, results from preliminary testing of groundwater detected elevated levels of Per-and Poly-fluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) around the Port of Townsville.  This testing was undertaken as part of a voluntary monitoring program by Port of Townsville Limited (POTL).

Following the detection results in April, POTL commenced a preliminary investigation with the assistance of GHD and Queensland Government Departments to understand the nature and extent of PFAS both within the port and beyond the port boundary. 

A copy of the report is available below.
