Above, Murray Sant, Ogden Air Logistics Center natural resource manager, examines damaged soil which will probably blow away or be washed away. The public should be careful not to create erosion problems such as those depicted above, said Sant.

Another application of foam follows. After another five minutes it is vacuumed, rinsed and vacuumed again. The final step to the treatment includes another application of Capsur and three complete rinses. Each treatment covers approximately 100 square feet and takes about one hour. Cleanup began Oct. 19 and was completed Oct. 25. The small amount of PCB-ladesoil outside the DRMO fence was originally to be excavated and taken to a toxic waste disposal facility. However, instead of an expensive excavation project, Garland said he wants to use a special fungus developed to 1 fence, but no significant levels below the asphalt. "This is where DRMO used to store old electrical transformers," said Garland of the spill area. "I sampled all along the (southwest perimeter) fence, and this is the only area where I found PCBs." he said. Sampling outside the fence revealed a small strip of contaminated soil that reached only about three or four feet beyond the fence. According to Garland, 80 percent of the area received one treatment of Capsur. The remaining 20 area with the highest conpercent, a centrations of PCBs, received three complete n 400-square-fo- ot treatments. Each treatment begins with a application of Capsur foam. Crews use stiff-bristle- d encourage natural biodegradation of the PCBs. "It's not a real danger, but you just can't walk away from it," Garland said. "When you find (PCBs), you have to clean them up." During the last few years, EM has cleaned up three other PCB spill sites on base. This was the first project to primarily use Capsur. Following the Capsur treatment, Garland sampled the area to determine how well the Capsur worked. Once the results are obtained from the base chemical laboratory, a report describing the cleanup and its results will be submitted to the Environmental Protection Agency. Once approved, an asphalt cap will be placed over the contaminated area. INEWSIBIUEFS "You also can write to anyone in management," he added. "QP will type and forward these comments. Please include your office symbol, or at least your directorate's two digit symbol." Lindsay said he, Ogden Air Logistics Center commander Maj. Gen. Dale W. Thompson Jr., and Hill's Quality survey If you haven't turned in your quality survey yet, today's the last day to do so. Deadline for the survey to be returned to QP was Thursday, but any surveys turned in today will be accepted, said Col. William E. Lindsay, the assistant to the commander for the quality program. Colonel Lindsay said there was also some confusion surrounding the comments section of the survey and some individuals felt uncomfortable answering the question honestly. "We want to give everyone the opportunity to write any final comments they have about the quality program," he said. "Even if you've turned in your survey, you may comment on the way the survey was handled in your area, what changes you would like to see in the survey or in the process in general." Lindsay said these comments should be mailed directly to QP by Nov. 8. jSTLC Combat Strength Through Logistics Hilltop Times Published by MorMedia, Inc.. a private firm in no way connected with the U.S. Air Force, under exclusive written contract with Hill AFB.
