Thirty-one airports throughout the State of California, including Los Angeles International Airport and San Bernardino International Airport, have been made the subject of new investigative orders pursuant to California Water Code § 13267. These airports, with training/fire response facilities will be required to prepare and submit work plans for review and approval by the State Water Quality Control Board (“SWQCB”) for the testing of ground water for Per Fluoroalkyl substances (“PFAS”). A summary of the study created by Steve Figgins of EKI Environment & Water of Irvine, California setting forth the SWQCB Study Phases and Targets for each phase can be found here. Note that airports and landfills are to be sampled in phase 1. It is important that the relevant time frames be achieved to avoid penalties under the applicable statutes.
