Base in final cleanup phase; Groundwater contamination to be eliminated|
By Drew Volturo Delaware State News January 30, 2006
DOVER - Mention the phrase Superfund site and the first image that often springs to mind is a toxic waste dump or a rank landfill.
A vision of Dover Air Force Base doesn’t quite fit, but the military installation has been on the Environmental Protection Agency's list for more than 15 years with 59 environmental contamination sites.
Many of those sites, scattered throughout the base, have been cleaned up in the past decade and the base is moving into the final round of site cleanup, said Joanne Deramo, environmental restoration program manager for the base.
"We are working on the last of the 59 sites," Ms. Deramo said. "All others have gone through the process and are either cleaned up or are in the process of being cleaned."
