Airport and aviation authorities across the nation have begun to recognize that the firefighting foam that the FAA requires be used in regular training at airport facilities is causing them tremendous environmental and financial harm.
OnderLaw represents airports that file lawsuits against firefighting foam manufacturers, accusing them of negligence in profiting from the sale of aqueous film-forming foam, or AFFF, a product that has contaminated countless airports and their surrounding lands with harmful chemicals.
These foams contain PFAS, also known as “forever chemicals” because they don’t break down well, even over significant amounts of time. They poison groundwater and soil, accumulating over time and sickening people who ingest them.
Airport authorities must pay huge amounts of money to mitigate this pollution. Onder Environmental Law is helping airports to cover their losses and force the corporations that profit from firefighting foam to pay damages.
