EPA Superfund Site LF-14 at George Air Force Base was closed with HydroTurf® as its landfill closure medium. This site received all the Air Force base’s wastes (lube oil, paint, lacquer, naphthalene, PD-680, TCE, cleaning fluids, batteries, fire-fighting foam, hydraulic fluid, etc.) since the base opened in 1941 and closed to military use in 1993.
The original soil cap suffered from severe erosion damage thus exposing waste. The site was also a high potential risk to ecological receptors. Restoration of the surface was considered in the OU 3 Feasibility Study. Calvin C. Cox of Cherokee Nation Technology Solutions (CNTS) states “the color selections of HydroTurf® the slope stability materials were well thought of for a perfect fit in the surrounding native landscape”.
The landfill surfaces were restored with an objective to control surface water run-off and prevent future erosion damage and waste exposure. Steep slope areas were severely eroded with some as deep as 6-ft scars. Both the East Slope and Southeast Slope of the landfill were severely eroded. The landfill was restored with over 4 acres of HydroTurf® Advanced Revetment Technology.
