EMR is in the seventh year of a nine-year performance-based remediation contract, conducting remedial investigations, underground storage tank closures, geophysical surveys, corrective action plans, site remediation, long-term monitoring, and developing optimized exit strategies at 51 sites regulated under both RCRA and CERCLA components. Contaminants include: petroleum hydrocarbons, volatile organic compounds, chlorinated solvents, heavy metals, and PCBs. Remedial strategies include: source removal, in situ bioremediation (aerobic and anaerobic), in situ chemical oxidation, groundwater plume capture, and landfill cap management with long-term monitoring. Within the first year of the contract, EMR successfully met the objectives of site closure at two sites, and currently has achieved closure of 34 sites. The overall goal is to achieve site closure at 38 of the 51 sites by 2020. For sites not anticipated to be closed within the nine-year period of performance, EMR is developing optimized exit strategies to expedite closure and provide the Air Force with significant lifecycle cost savings.
