Subject: [CPEO-MEF] VOCs, FORMER SITES: Schilling Air Force Base (KS) TCE mediation
Talks start in Oct. on Salina TCE lawsuit

The first mediation sessions have been scheduled for next month in an ongoing fight over cleaning up contamination at a former U.S. Air Force base in Salina.

Officials from the city of Salina, the Salina Airport Authority the Salina school district and Kansas State University-Salina filed a federal lawsuit in Kansas City, Kan., last year in a bid to expedite cleaning up soil and groundwater polluted decades ago with an industrial degreaser and other chemicals at the former Schilling Air Force Base.

Salina acquired the base when it closed in 1965. The site is now home to Kansas State University-Salina, Salina Municipal Airport and Salina Technical School. The plaintiffs contend that the federal government should pay for the cleanup because the chemicals came from the Air Force operation at the site.
