"Devastating" Report On KAFB Fuel Spill Cleanup

ABQ Report (NM)
October 31, 2017

After 17 years of trying and $130 million in expenditures, the U.S. Air Force and the New Mexico Environment Department still don't have much of the information they need to develop a cleanup plan for the Kirtland Air Force Base fuel spill that threatens Albuquerque's drinking water supply, according to a new report on the cleanup effort.
And the Air Force has been downplaying what it will really take to clean up the spill, the report said.
The Air Force and the NMED still don't know the horizontal and vertical boundaries of the toxic EDB [Ethylene dibromide] plume in the city's groundwater outside the base, said the report by Intera Geoscience & Engineering Solutions of Austin, Texas.
