[This appears to be an example of adaptive site management or
transition assessment. From online sources, it appears that Wright-
Patterson performed a Remedial Process Optimization at an area where
pump-and-treat was losing its effectiveness, even though the remedy
was deemed "protective" in the latest five-year review. Does anyone
have details of the new treatment system? - LS]
WPAFB seeks to abandon 175 wells by 2019 Plans call to install new groundwater treatment system By Barrie Barber Dayton Daily News (OH) March 18, 2015FAIRBORN - Wright-Patterson Air Force Base expects to abandoned dozens of groundwater monitoring wells over the next five years because they are no longer needed to detect plumes of underground contamination, a base official said.
The base has more than 500 monitoring wells and most will remain when the others are abandoned, according to Treva A. Bashore, manager of the installation restoration program. The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency has given the go-ahead to abandon the wells, but the U.S. EPA must first sign off on the agreement, also, she said.
The first batch of 35 wells in Area A near Skeel Road would be abandoned this summer, and then 35 more a year will be retired through 2019. Wright-Patterson will not abandon so-called “sentinel” boundary monitoring wells, she said.
...On Wednesday, Bashore said the base plans to install a new, and less costly but equally effective groundwater treatment system to replace an aging system.
