Performance-Based Contract, Advanced Bioremediation
Technology Sped Environmental Cleanup At Andrews Air
Force Base
Scientists and engineers from environmental

contaminant-impacted site at a service station
on Andrews Air Force Base, Maryland, home base of Air Force One. The in-
situ cleanup used a recently introduced remediation technology, ORC

that had resisted earlier cleanup attempts with conventional technologies,

and a half dollars..

has brought this asset management problem to public
attention. New corrosion-control tools, if properly
selected and used, could save hundreds of billions of
dollars over the long term.
