Kirtland Fuel Spill Worse Than Thought By John Fleck Albuquerque Journal (NM) March 24, 2011Groundwater contamination from a Kirtland Air Force Base jet fuel spill has spread farther than previously believed, according to a report presented to municipal water officials Wednesday.
A new test well drilled by the Air Force last year beneath a southeast Albuquerque neighborhood shows evidence of contamination, two blocks north of what was previously believed to be the spill's northern-most reach, according to a consultant for the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority.
The tests, done by the Air Force on water collected last October, show the contamination is "much farther along than we had anticipated," David Jordan of INTERA Inc. told the water utility's board of directors.
