Navy confirmed toxins in wastewater at base in Japan


Recommended Posts

YOKOSUKA NAVAL BASE, Japan — Reports of an “unusual foam” led to the discovery in May of two toxins at a wastewater treatment facility on the base, Naval Forces Japan said Tuesday. 

Wastewater treatment plant officials notified the base on May 4 they had discovered the foam, and subsequent testing May 9 confirmed the presence of the chemicals PFOS and PFOA, Naval Forces Japan spokeswoman Cmdr. Katie Cerezo told Stars and Stripes by email Tuesday.
