ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A review of reports from the Kirtland Air Force Base jet fuel leak are nearly complete.

The fuel leak, discovered in 1999, has been seeping into the ground for decades.

Since then, the base has been working to clean it up before it reaches any more water sources.

Officials say once the review is complete, they will select the best next steps for cleanup.
