Requa Air Force Station
The former Requa Air Force Station (RAFS), which is presently used by Redwood National and State Parks as a maintenance facility, and which formerly was the site of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) offices and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) radar station, qualifies as a Formerly Used Defense Site. Soil and groundwater contamination from leaking underground storage tanks is being investigated by YTEP with the assistance of the United States Army Corps of Engineers and the Tribe’s contractor, ATC Associates.
Currently, the Tribe is overseeing soil and groundwater sampling at RAFS, and will be looking into cleanup options in the coming year.
