Loring Air Force Base Closure
Presque Isle, Maine
Loring Air Force Base was shut down in the early 1990s as part of the base closure and realignment process. Sealand Enviro provided environmental engineering and remedial construction services to the US Army Corps of engineers in association with the closure of the base over a four-year period assisting in the return of the 9,000-acre site to non-military use. Under various contracts, Sealand Enviro completed decontamination and decommissioning of structures and remediation of soils and groundwater.
The project included the dismantling and removal of the entire jet fuel storage and distribution system including the demolition of pump houses, twenty 50,000-gallon tanks and miles of jet fuel piping. Sealand Enviro provided onsite remediation of jet fuel contaminated soils through the use of soil vapor extraction systems. Ancillary tasks included the construction of an onsite landfill and remediation of the base firing range.
