Kirtland decides not to form restoration advisory board

The attached decision memo from Kirtland Commander Col. Eric Froehlich details our conclusion that a Restoration Advisory Board should not be formed at this time. Based on the lack of commitment to participate by a representative cross-section of affected publics and organizations, the determination was made that significant and sustained community interest and involvement does not exist at this time. The question will be reexamined again in two years. For a more in-depth breakdown, see the attached memo.

Jet Fuel Remediation

In November 1999, the Air Force detected evidence of a fuel leak in an underground pipeline at the Bulk Fuels Facility on Kirtland Air Force Base, New Mexico. Now, through a unique partnership between the Air Force, regulators, and the Albuquerque community, significant progress is being made to clean up the fuel plume.
