Antenna Field And Airstrip Removal Actions, Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Atlantic
APTIM removed contaminants of concern (COC) within three buildings prior to demolition, excavated debris and contaminated soils, and performed soil cap maintenance at the former Navy Artic Research Laboratory (NARL). Sites included the former Antenna Field, former Waste Disposal Area, and the Airstrip. Contaminants of concern included lead, PCBs, asbestos, and petroleum hydrocarbons. We overcame multiple challenges and difficult site conditions to successfully obtain closure on 15 of the 16 scoped excavations. NARL is located in Barrow, Alaska, the northernmost settlement in the US, approximately 350 miles north of the Arctic Circle. It is known for its remote location and harsh conditions.
