Drilling on Kirtland wells to start in 2015

The Air Force unveiled a proposal Wednesday to begin drilling wells in 2015 to try to intercept groundwater contamination from a Kirtland Air Force Base fuel spill before it can reach Albuquerque municipal drinking water wells.

In all, the proposal calls for eight new cleanup wells to be operating by August 2016.

But a top Air Force official acknowledged that the first of the wells will not be installed until mid-2015, missing a December deadline to get that phase of the work completed. "We will not be achieving that goal by December of this year," Deputy Assistant Air Force Secretary Mark Correll told members of the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority board.
