Thursday, October 15, 2020 was abuzz at Brice Engineering’s 50,000 square-foot project site located on the south side of Peterson AFB (PAFB), adjacent to the fire station. Half-way into executing a Treatability Study of 500 cubic yards of PFOS/PFAS contaminated soil from Aqueous Film-Forming Foam (AFFF) release sites at PAFB, we hosted a site tour for the Air Force.
At 1:00 p.m. that Thursday, Sharon Stone, AFCEC’s Environmental Restoration Program Manager for PAFB, along with ~14 PAFB staff convened at the site. The gathering began with a safety briefing by Site Safety Manager, Steve Hauff who performed a temperature check for each visitor, per Brice’s COVID-19 safety protocol. After everyone had signed in, Brice’s PFAS Program Manager, Steve Becker commenced the site tour which lasted about two hours.
“We expected four visitors and were delighted that 15 arrived to the site! That said to me that there’s real interest in the potential for Brice’s soil washing process to remove PFOS/PFAS from soils at the base,” said Steve. “The group asked many great questions throughout the site walk. The level of discourse and interest in the process was exciting.”
Two weeks after the site tour, Brice successfully completed the study and is now working on analysis and reporting. To learn more about this project, visit this link.
