Kirtland Air Force Base says work to get rid of contaminated groundwater will continue for years.

According to the Albuquerque Journal, the Air Force says there are no funding issues for the cleanup. They say so far $125 million have gone into removing contaminants. The fuel leak, discovered in 1999 is believed to have been seeping into the ground for decades.

The Water Authority is expected to respond to a report from the Air Force at a public meeting on Thursday at 6 p.m. at the African American Performing Arts Center, 310 San Pedro NE.
