We make every effort to ensure the data presented here is accurate based on the best available information currently on file with DEC.

The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (ADOT&PF) is planning to construct a concrete floor in the Snow Removal Equipment (SRE) building at the Selawik Airport. During the phase I evaluation of the shop floors, the presence of contamination was identified on the gravel floor of the SRE building at the Selawik Airport. Nortech estimates approximately 6.5 cubic yard of contaminated soil remain at the facility. Phase I was limited to visual observations (no screening or analytical). Visual observations were limited due to the presence of wet gravel making it difficult to discern between just wet gravel and gravel stained by contamination. Visual observations suggested contamination limited in depth.
