Subject: [CPEO-MEF] FORMER SITES, FUEL: Haines Pipeline (AK) cleanup
Cleanup Under Way at Sites Along Old Pipeline that Brought Fuel to Interior’s Military Bases 

July 12, 2017 

Cleanup work began this month at a mothballed pump station near Delta Junction that was part of the old Haines to Fairbanks Pipeline. Crews will remove contaminated materials from the Timber Pump Station and two other sites that were part of an old Army-operated pipeline built in the 1950s to transport fuel to the Interior’s three military bases.

The work at the old pump station near Quartz Lake includes removing soil, equipment and materiel that were used to help transport fuel from Haines to Eielson Air Force Base, Fort Wainwright and Fort Greely while the pipeline was operating from 1954 to 1973.

Army Corps of Engineers project manager Beth Astley says most of 4,000 cubic yards of soil that’ll be excavated from the Timber Pump Station was contaminated with the byproducts of burning waste oil in an old disposal pit.
