Kirtland Air Force Base Fuel Spill

Updated information on the Kirtland Air Force Base fuel spill clean up efforts

On August 13th, 2016 our office along with the office of County Commissioner Maggie Hart Stebbins, Sunflowers for Change, the South San Pedro Neighborhood Association, and La Mesa Neighborhood Association brought together community members to discuss the Kirtland Air Force Base Jet Fuel Spill.

We provided translators to accommodate English, Spanish, and Vietnamese speaking individuals.

During the event community members broke up into small groups to come up with a list of questions to ask the U.S. Airforce and NM Environment Department. After about an hour of discussion the Airforce and Environment Department joined us and answered questions.

In addition to providing an oral response, the questions were recorded and a written response was provided. Click here to see the written responses.
