Subject: [CPEO-MEF] FUEL, REUSE: Former Williams Air Force Base (AZ) gas station
Environmental cleanup ongoing at former Air Force base gas station

It's labeled Site ST035 on an environmental-cleanup map.

But more people know it as the location of the former Williams Air Force Base gas station, where leaking fuel contaminated the soil and groundwater with benzene and other pollutants for decades.

Today even more people know the site as Arizona State University Polytechnic's new Academic Complex, which stands as a symbol of how far the massive environmental-recovery effort has come and how far it still has to go.

The private contractors hired to conduct the recovery estimate that all of the sites will be ready for removal from the EPA list by the end of the decade.
