PFAS Contaminated Sites
Since PFAS was first discovered at state-managed airports, DEC, Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT&PF), Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS), and the Department of Administration (DOA) have been working together to respond to the contamination, including providing alternative drinking water and information to the affected communities, and to investigate the sources and extent of the contamination. The agencies are currently involved in response actions in Fairbanks, Gustavus, Dillingham, King Salmon, Moose Creek, North Pole, and Yakutat.

PFAS Contaminated Sites and Impacted Drinking Water
An inventory of all sites where PFAS contamination has been identified in soil and water can be found here: PFAS Sites in Alaska (XLS). This list will be updated monthly, or as new sites are added. Information about these sites, including environmental documents that are available, may be accessed through the Contaminated Sites Database by entering the site's Hazard ID, shown on the MS Excel spreadsheet. The communities where PFAS-impacted drinking water has been identified are:
- Moose Creek
- North Pole
- King Salmon
PFAS Drinking Water Sample Results
DEC has received multiple public records act requests for PFAS analytical results from drinking water wells that have been sampled throughout the state. In an effort to provide transparency and share information, DEC is making these PFAS drinking water sample results available on our PFAS webpage. Project-specific results may also be available on the Contaminated Sites or Drinking Water databases. Please note this data may not represent all areas potentially affected by PFAS or all drinking water wells located within known PFAS-affected areas. Some information contained in these files has been redacted for privacy reasons. Please continue to check back as we update this information.
