PFAS exposure at NAS Oceana Naval Base

Located in Virginia Beach, Virginia, the military base was built in 1941. It is known as the home of east coast strike fighter jet squadrons and was deemed a master jet base. Because military firefighters used aqueous film-forming foam, commonly known as AFFF, during their training, contamination with PFAS is severe on NAS Oceana Naval Base.

Thereby, everyone who was stationed on the base drank tainted water, which now places veterans and their family members at high risk of developing a serious disease. If you spent at least 1 cumulative year at NAS Oceana Naval Base and came to struggle with a disease, please contact Atraxia Law and we will evaluate your case.

In 2016, the Environmental Protection Agency found 493,600 parts per trillion of PFAS in the drinking water of NAS Oceana Naval Base, which is a significantly higher level than the permissible limit. In addition to PFAS, jet fuel is also polluting the military base, as in 2017, 94,000 gallons of jet fuel spilled from a storage tank and subsequently spread to neighboring properties and waterways. If you were exposed to jet fuel for a long time, you may experience neurological problems, such as:

  • headache
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • dizziness
  • fatigue
  • difficulty coordinating
  • irritability
  • attention and memory problems
  • narcosis

PFAS were found in 64% of the drinking water at Norfolk Naval Station, NAS Oceana Naval Base, Joint Base Langley-Eustis, and Fentress Naval Auxiliary Landing Field in 2018. Exposure to PFAS can lead to numerous terrible diseases, but only people who were stationed at NAS Oceana Naval Base for at least 1 cumulative year and developed a linkable disease qualify for compensation.
