|Subject:||[CPEO-MEF] CLEANUP: Hill Air Force Base (UT) review|
Consultants, advisers: Clean-up on track By Benjamin Marrs and John Gillespie Air Force Center for Engineering and the Environment Hilltop Times (UT) February 18, 2010A team of Air Force and consulting scientists reviewing the environmental cleanup program at Hill Air Force Base has found that base officials managing environmental clean-up will meet or exceed key milestones.
The accelerated progress made at Hill AFB means base environmental officials are on track for compliance with the Air Force goal of "Remedy-in-Place" by 2012 at the majority of sites. The advisers say continuing to focus on monitoring indoor air quality in new and existing buildings, and focusing on cleaning up solvents will set the stage for negotiations with Utah officials to "close out" cleanup efforts.
The Nov. 2-10 expert review of Hill's environmental clean-up program is part of a unique program sponsored by the Air Force Center for Engineering and the Environment to assist bases by providing an intensive evaluation of clean-up efforts to ensure they are protective, efficient, timely, and that decision-makers are informed. This "Environmental Restoration Program Optimization" review, or ERP-O, included key questions posed by Hill officials to accelerate the closure of sites that are poised to enter the final stages of environmental cleanup.
