Site cleanup to begin in preparation for Roy Gate relocation By Lee Anne Hensley Hilltop Times (UT) December 3, 2009A construction project will begin within the first two weeks of December to prepare an area for the relocation of the Roy Gate. An area within the new Falcon Hill development project will have contaminated soil and construction debris removed from a former disposal area so that site conditions allow for gate construction and a safe working environment for those building the new gate.
The area, known as Operable Unit 12 Source Area or Aspen Avenue Disposal Area, is located between Aspen Avenue and Wardleigh Road and south of the current location of Roy Gate. This site was once used as a disposal area before stricter disposal standards were mandated by law and, consequently, contaminates -- primarily the solvent trichloroethylene -- disposed at the site have leaked into the ground. In a two-pronged effort to remove contaminates that may create an unsafe work area or source to the groundwater while leaving the site ready for gate construction, the Hill Air Force Base Environment Management Division has teamed with the Enhanced Use Lease group to develop project objectives that meet the goals of both groups.
