Salina Contamination Case Progressing Todd Pittenger KSAL News (Salina, KS) August 17, 2009Salina is getting closer to cleaning up the contamination at the former Schilling Air Force Base, now the airport industrial area.

Contamination includes both liquid and vapor.The main concern is two large underground plumes of contamination, one in the north part of the Airport Industrial Area, and another on the south end.
