EPA Eyes Tyndall

The Environmental Protection Agency has issued a clean-up order “compelling the Air Force” to “properly conduct” a cleanup of Tyndall AFB, Fla. EPA put the base on its Superfund National Priorities List in 1997, and, according to an EPA release, more than 50 sites have potential contamination. They include landfills, fire training areas, fuel and pesticide storage areas, and vehicle maintenance shops. The 44-page order spells out a series of steps and time frames.
