VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — Six water wells that were tested near Naval Air Station Oceana fell below EPA advisory levels.

The U.S Navy notified and provided the six property owners with the results earlier this week. They had requested to sample drinking water stations near NAS Oceana to determine if they contain perfluorootanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) in early December.
