Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study at the Quillayute Former Naval Auxiliary Air Station, US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Forks, WA

In 1941, the Quillayute Naval Auxiliary Air Station was constructed just outside the city of Forks, Washington, to support wartime efforts. The property was eventually turned over to the state of Washington, which in 1999 deeded it to Forks and is now known as the Quillayute Airport and utilized as a public airport. However, as a Formerly Used Defense Site (FUDS) the Department of Defense (DoD) is still responsible for cleaning up Hazardous, Toxic, and Radioactive Waste (HTRW) left over from when the military operated at the site. Analytical data produced by environmental laboratories in support of DoD cleanup projects and managed by the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) must comply with stringent guidelines and undergo extensive third-party verification and validation.
