KIRTLAND AIR FORCE BASE, N.M. - Air Force officials have delivered proposed plans to the New Mexico Environment Department on how to clean up a spill that has left a foot of jet fuel atop an underground reservoir in Albuquerque.

The two plans delivered Friday had been due this coming Tuesday. A third plan is due July 7.

The Air Force plans to install two dozen pumps to suck jet fuel out of the ground beneath Kirtland Air Force Base and surrounding neighborhoods. The pumps are an interim step while long-term cleanup plans for the massive underground contamination are developed.
