To respond to your implied question, "No"!  No one from the military has
called us about accelerated soil and groundwater clean-up methods and
alternatives.  You know as well as I do that most people in the
environmental industry are far more content using time-consuming (yes,
decades-long) clean-up methodologies rather than significantly reducing
costs and the time required to achieve site remediation.  To quote an
environmental consultant "friend" of mine after I had shown him that we
could clean up a site in less than 3 years for about 20% of the total
costs that were anticipated:  "You mean that you want me to reduce my
income from this project by 80%!  You're crazy!"  Never mind what the
public, the client or the tax-payer wants.  It seems that the last thing
a consultant cleaning up a site wants to do is, guess what, "complete
the project"!
