Secretary of Defense Environmental Award Fiscal Year 2016: Submission for Environmental Restoration - Installation, 6 pp, 2017

During underground storage tank (UST) removals at Fort Bragg, innovative soil sampling and screening techniques used while performing UST removals saved ~$1M in lifecycle costs at four UST removal sites in 2015 and 2016. Adoption of the passive diffusion bag process as a primary method for groundwater monitoring resulted in a 95% reduction in investigation-derived waste and a 75% reduction in staffing for sampling and analytical services. "Green" cleanup techniques implemented at the facility include in situ enhanced anaerobic bioremediation, passive remediation and sampling, and natural attenuation. https://www.denix.osd.mil/awards/2017secdef/environmental-restoration-installation/fort-bragg-north-carolina/
