Why should you care about PFOA’s and C8?

You lock your doors, tuck your children into bed and do everything you can to make sure they are safe. Then they ask you for a glass of water before they fall asleep. You give them a glass of tap water and kiss them good night. Meanwhile, the chemical companies are dumping PFOA's into the ground. The military bases are hosing down AFFF until it seeps into the ground. These chemicals degrade into C8 and make it into your water supply. They may be in that glass of water you just gave your child.

We are here to help!

McGuire-Fort Dix-Lakehurst Joint Base, New Jersey

McGuire-Fort Dix-Lakehurst Joint Base finally revealed that 21 sites test at the joint base are positive for the Cancer causing PFOA. The Military also acknowledge that the likely source for this contamination is the AFFF foam used to put out fires. It is well established that AFFF seeps into the ground water and into our drinking water. It degrades as a manmade chemical commonly referred to as C8. Our bodies are unable to eliminate the chemical and it builds up to toxic levels. The result of the exposure is cancer and several other life threatening illnesses.

Edward Harrington Heyburn, Esq. is looking for a representative plaintiff that has been harmed by AFFF.  If you or someone you know suspects that they have been harmed by the polluted drinking water at McGuire-Fort Dix-Lakehurst and its surrounding communities, please contact our office immediately at (609) 240-5578.
