Air Force to begin cleaning up old Scott landfill by spring BY MIKE FITZGERALD Belleville News-Democrat (IL) August 9, 2013SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE - Preliminary plans call for U.S. Air Force contractors to begin cleaning up an abandoned 36-acre landfill at the base some time after March, according to the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency supervisor overseeing the project.
With the public comment period closed, the Air Force will likely submit its draft record of decision by Jan. 1, with remedial design and action plans submitted in the months to follow, said Paul Lake, IEPA project manager.
The Air Force has not officially picked its method for cleaning up the site. But planning documents for a public hearing in June show its preference was for spending an estimated $4.6 million on a program to monitor the site for contaminants such as iron and arsenic that could move into nearby Mosquito and Silver creeks.
