Peterson removes AFFF

A 21st Civil Engineer Squadron Airman uses a front-end loader to load a container filled with aqueous film forming foam effluence into the back of a truck at Fire Station 1 at Peterson Air Force Base, Colo., April 19, 2017 so it can be transported to an off base contractor for disposal. The legacy AFFF from aircraft rescue firefighting vehicles was replaced with a newer formulated product containing significantly fewer perfluorooctanioc and perfluorooctanesulfonic acids , which are suspected of contaminating groundwater supplies in communities around the world where legacy AFFF was used.
