Air Force to pay $750,000 for fuel cleanup delays Albuquerque Journal December 3, 2015 ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - The Air Force will pay New Mexico $750,000 for failing to meet a December 2014 deadline in the ongoing cleanup of the Kirtland Air Force Base fuel spill. Payment of the $750,000 was agreed to on Wednesday by the Air Force and the New Mexico Environment Department. It resolves a Notice of Violation filed Jan. 15 because the Air Force missed a deadline for installing and implementing interim measures for cleaning up fuel spill contaminants. Those contaminants pose a threat to drinking water wells in Albuquerque’s Southeast Heights. “We will not rest until the contamination is completely removed from the groundwater,” said Ryan Flynn, NMED secretary in a news release. “We are very pleased with the last two years’ worth of progress, including, most recently, the treatment of over 16 million gallons of contaminated water since last June.” … For the entire article, see http://www.abqjournal.com/685007/news/for-fuel-cleanup-delays.html -- Lenny Siegel Executive Director, Center for Public Environmental Oversight a project of the Pacific Studies Center 278-A Hope Street Mountain View, CA 94041 Voice: 650-961-8918 or 650-969-1545 Fax: 650-961-8918 LSiegel@cpeo.org http://www.cpeo.org _______________________________________________ Military mailing list Military@lists.cpeo.org http://lists.cpeo.org/listinfo.cgi/military-cpeo.org
