Soil clean up to continue at Ft Wainwright

The Army is entering a second full season of a hazardous waste investigation and clean up around new housing at Ft.Wainwright. Contractors completing the 110 unit Taku  Gardens complex discovered drums in the soil in 2006.  That halted work and triggered a major investigation and remediation effort. Last year more than 1800 tons of PCB tainted soils were excavated from the site.  The soil was shipped to Oregon for remediation.  More tainted dirt will be shipped out this summer.
