HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo., Aug. 16 (UPI) -- A dozen sites on a U.S. Air Force base in Georgia are to undergo environmental restoration.

Arcadis, a Colorado consulting, engineering and management services company, said it will perform the work at Moody Air Force Base for the Air Force Center for Engineering and the Environment as a task order under a U.S. Air Force Worldwide Environmental Remediation contract.

Sites to undergo decontamination include landfills, industrial and vehicle maintenance shops, fueling stations, disposal and burn areas. Associated soil, groundwater plumes and drainage areas are included.

"Each of the sites identified for cleanup will require individual analysis and a technological approach designed to address the specific characteristics of the contamination," said Steve Blake, chief executive officer for Arcadis, U.S.

"The base will benefit from our innovative approach to restoring these sites with minimal impact to base residents and their mission in support of the nation's national security."

The task order is valued at $18 million.
