Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Avon Park (FL) range cleanup
Range still doing clean up from World War II use

AVON PARK -- Researchers with the U.S. Air Force Environmental
Restoration Program are dealing right now with helping clean up
landfills, storage sites and other potentially contaminated areas on the range.

Mike Stevens, restoration program manager, said there is concern with
contamination of the soil because, in Florida, that usually means
contaminated ground water. 

"Every base in Florida is dealing with the same thing," he said Tuesday
at a meeting of the Avon Park Air Force Range Restoration Advisory Board.

Paul Ebersbach, chief of the Environmental Flight Wing at the range,
said the process is moving much faster now that researchers have been
able to bundle two or three site visits into one funding request and had
representatives with the Environmental Protection Agency on hand to
analyze the data and verify it quicker.
