When AFRPA did a site characterization of this site, they found that a plume was heading off base.
Though the site is on its way to becoming a major accomplishment, the director said AFRPA is not done with Kelly AFB when the site is complete.
Also managed by AFRPA, the Chanute project uses the trees to absorb liquid that has been in contact with landfill waste.
AFRPA officials expect the use of these trees will increase ecological habitat, reduce energy consumption and reduce the cost of maintenance.
These innovations have helped AFRPA officials transfer 86 percent of BRAC property, that's more than 75,000 acres of land, to the community.
