2019 was filled with challenges, opportunities, and accomplishments for our district. Allow me to share with you a few of our recent successes.
Funding for PFAS Containment and Filtration at Horsham Air Guard Station
On January 2, 2020, my office got great news: the Air Force had disbursed $2.8 million in funds that will allow Horsham Air Guard Station (formerly Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Willow Grove) to partner with the Warminster Municipal Authority to build a permanent containment and filtration system for PFAS-contaminated surface water.
For years, we have been concerned by the ongoing contamination flowing from the Willow Grove base and into our region’s groundwater. On December 16, 2019, I sent a letter to the Comptroller of the Air Force, emphasizing the ongoing risks to people in our area and urging final approval of the Willow Grove project.
Two weeks later, we learned that the funds had come through – bringing us a step closer to cleaning up our region’s drinking water.
