New members of the Wurtsmith Restoration Advisory Board took a site tour Aug. 2 to learn about environmental restoration activities at the former base in Oscoda, Michigan. The advisory group includes eight government and nine community stakeholders tasked with enabling community involvement and providing input in the environmental restoration process. Pictured, Matt Marrs, AFCEC's base environmental coordinator for the Wurtsmith project shows RAB members the site of a KC-135 Stratotanker crash in October 1988. The Air Force successfully remediated groundwater and treated soil contaminated with jet fuel from the crash; the site remains open as the Air Force addresses contamination stemming from the Aqueous Film Forming Foam used to douse the flames saving the lives of 10 passengers.
