Fire Fighting Foams Are Used During Training Exercises

At Defence Force Facilities Around Australia:

In 2017, the ABC TV [Australia] reported that the use of
firefighting foams during training exercises at
Australian Defence Force facilities around
Australia had contaminated nearby
water resources. 

Some say this is the worst pollution in Australia’s history – on 70 + sites.
The media, except  ⇒   ABC TV  ‘Four Corners 
   are ignoring it !

 However the  “Protected Pollutant Fluoride”  ⇐  is NOT
mentioned by name by the ABC

…Health and Environmental Concerns of ‘Persistent Organic Pollutants’:

Fluorosurfactants such as perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS), perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), and perfluorononanoic acid (PFNA) have caught the attention of regulatory agencies because of their persistence, toxicity, and widespread occurrence in the blood of general populations[6][7] and wildlife. In 2009 PFASs were listed as persistent organic pollutants under the Stockholm Convention, due to their ubiquitous, persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic nature.[8][9] Their production has been regulated or phased out by manufacturers, such as 3M, DuPont, Daikin, and Miteni in the USA, Japan, and Europe.

Some manufacturers have now [when?] replaced PTFOS and PFOA with short-chain PFASs, such as perfluorohexanoic acid (PFHxA), perfluorobutanesulfonic acid[5] and perfluorobutane sulfonate (PFBS). Shorter fluorosurfactants may be less prone to accumulating in mammalians;[5] there is still concern that they may be harmful to both humans,[10][11][12] and the environment at large.[13]
