According to population number and size, Hill Air Force Base is the second-largest base in northern Utah and home to numerous operational and support missions. Its construction began in 1940 and got its name from Major Ployer Peter Hill of the U.S. Army Air Corps. The base was an essential supply and maintenance center supporting war efforts. Its responsibilities nowadays include the operation of the Utah Test and Training Range, Ogden Air Logistics Complex, Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, and Nuclear Weapons Center.
The tests conducted by the Utah Department of Environmental Quality registered water contamination with high levels of "forever chemicals." Clearing water infected with PFOS and PFOA has become a global challenge. These chemicals found in various products, including firefighting foam, are known to inflict long-term effects on human health.
Aqueous film-forming foam has been manufactured since the 1950s. It contains chemical substances that cause negative human health effects that are so persistent that they don’t disintegrate after entering the body or the environment. Hill Air Force Base is a Superfund site heavily contaminated with PFAS. The substances involved in the Environmental Protection Agency cleanup included VOCs, chromium, cadmium, manganese, and arsenic. The EPA considers the 16 areas of the site operable and has taken long-term cleanup measures.
Per - and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) have been found on Hill Air Force Base and are subject to investigation, as these manufactured chemicals threaten human life and environmental safety.
The constant use of AFFF and contaminated water sources are currently causing adverse health consequences, such as different types of cancer, difficulties at birth, immune system failure, and other disruptions.
Veterans and their family members exposed to PFAS and stationed on Hill Air Force Base are entitled to compensation for their suffering.
Exposure to PFAS generated by the release into the environment through the use of AFFF is correlated with a significant number of severe diseases. The diagnoses that make people who were stationed at Hill Air Force Base eligible for financial reparations are:
