SUISUN CITY, Calif. - A contractor working for Travis Air Force Base has begun excavating soil near the site of a fuel pipeline leak that occurred nearly two years ago.
Working for the Air Force under guidance from Solano County, the contractor will excavate a trench approximately 10 feet wide by 60 feet long to a depth of 12 feet on the shoulder of Highway 12 near Lawler Ranch Parkway.
The soil is being hauled to a certified hazardous waste facility out of the area.
The work is expected to continue through October 26.
No traffic disruptions or public safety hazards are expected related to the current work.
