Corps of Engineers continues Kodiak military cleanup using new device|
This summer on two plots of land on Kodiak Island, contractors working for the government will install wellheads, not to extract water or precious oil and gas, but to inject air into the ground.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is returning to Kodiak this summer to continue cleanup projects at some of Kodiak's former military sites. Two of those sites — one near the Alaska Department of Transportation building on Anton Larsen Bay Road, the other on one corner of Air Station Kodiak — have oil trapped in the wet soil atop their bedrock, the result of decades worth of tiny spills.
The air-injection wells are a test, meant to see if adding oxygen to the ground will encourage oil-eating bacteria already present in the soil to thrive and eat up that oil.
