Former US military bases providing soil remediation education

Former military bases in the US are offering earth-friends education opportunities for students, helping to educate them in matters such as soil remediation.

A soil cleanup was taking place at Arizona State University’s Poly Technic campus, which was once the Williams Air Force Base in Arizona.

In the past, military operations had seen fuel spills and leaks on the site, meaning that a cleanup operation was required.

Student Theodore Betkie told the US Air Force’s website that after hearing about the initiative he decided he wanted to learn more, and he and his classmates took a closer look at the soil vapour extraction, which was taking place right under their feet.

Speaking about the experience, he told the website: "We felt it would be better for the class to come out and take a first-hand look at some of the equipment.

"It was very educational. We wanted to get a better understanding of the process taking place out here and I feel more knowledgeable with what's happening here because of it."

AFCEC engineer Michelle Lewis explained about the cleanup technologies being used at the campus to rectify this problem.
