Contractors with Brice Construction Ltd. deploy an air rotary drilling rig as part of a pilot study civil engineering project during a per- and polyfluoroalkyl remedial investigation Nov. 18, 2021, at Cannon Air Force Base, New Mexico. In May 2021, the USAF awarded a $16.6M contract for an Engineering Evaluation/Cost Analysis, or "EE/CA," with a pilot study to evaluate and determine the appropriate interim responses to implement while the investigation is ongoing. The pilot study will expand to accommodate full-scale treatment requirements if test results indicate that it is the most effective way to reduce and eliminate off-base PFAS migration.
