The SIAD Restoration Advisory Board submitted a plan for the cleanup of contaminated ground water at the abandoned landfill and southern sites areas located at the southern portion of the depot.
The plan was submitted for public comment and discussed at length at the board’s regular meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 26.
RAB co-chairman Susan Holliday moderated the meeting, which she said was primarily to inform the board of the current cleanup process.
