Subject: [CPEO-MEF] FUEL, COMMUNITIES: Citizen Action calls for EPA review of Kirtland AFB (NM) oil spill
EPA assessment sought for fuel spill

Two New Mexico citizen groups, concerned about what they say is slow progress in dealing with Kirtland Air Force Base groundwater contamination, have repeated their call for the federal Environmental Protection Agency to conduct an independent review.

In a letter last week, the groups called on the EPA to conduct its own preliminary assessment under the federal Superfund law of the risks posed by the fuel spill, which has contaminated groundwater beneath Kirtland and adjoining neighborhoods and is moving toward Albuquerque drinking water wells.

Dave McCoy of the Albuquerque-based Citizen Action, who is leading the push for EPA intervention, complained that the Air Force and state Environment Department are not pursuing cleanup “in any meaningful way.”
