LATA Awarded USACE Kansas City Forbes S-9 Task Order
LATA was awarded a fixed price task order under its existing Environmental Remediation Services MATOC from the USACE Kansas City to perform an in-situ bioremediation injection and four (4) years of performance monitoring at the Forbes Atlas Missile Site S-9. This Atlas Missile Site was operational from 1959 to 1965. Groundwater at the Site was contaminated with TCE resulting from flushing the Atlas missile fuel tanks. The site was transferred to Unified School District 335 in 1966 and the missile complex was converted into a high school. An elementary school was also constructed in 1976. The S-9 Site continues to be used as a high school and elementary school serving approximately 500 students, teachers and administrative staff.
