Lowry Assumption, LLC is initiating a Five Year Review as part of their obligations to the Air Force under privatization of the former Lowry Air Force base. They are performing a review of the completed environmental remedial actions (where pollutants may still exist) at the former Lowry AFB.
You can see what’s new in the remediation process on their website: http://www.lowryafbcleanup.com
THE AIR FORCE CIVIL ENGINEER CENTER IS CONDUCTING A FIVE-YEAR REVIEW AT THE FORMER LOWRY AIR FORCE BASE, DENVER AND AURORA, COLORADO, APRIL 2018.
On behalf of the Air Force Civil Engineer Center (AFCEC), Lowry Assumption, LLC (LAC) conducted the second Five-Year Review of environmental remedies that have been implemented at the former Lowry Air Force Base in 2013. Under an Agreement between LAC and AFCEC with oversight from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 8, a review of long-term remedial activities is required every five years to ensure continued protection of human health and the environment.
Five-year reviews are conducted for sites where the remedial action is complete, but where hazardous substances, pollutants or contaminants remain at the site above levels that would allow unlimited use and unrestricted exposure; or for sites at which the remedy, upon completion, is not expected to leave hazardous substances on site above levels that allow for unrestricted use but require five or more years to complete. This review provides an assessment of the implementation and performance of a remedy in order to determine if the remedy is or will be protective of human health and the environment.
Remedies implemented at Lowry include:
Landfill Zone Operable Unit 2 – reconstructed landfill cover and run-on/run-off controls, implemented long-term post-closure monitoring of soil gas, surface water, and groundwater; placed restrictive use environmental covenant.
Basewide Groundwater (Operable Unit 5) – conducted aggressive in situ chemical oxidation of groundwater plumes to eliminate contaminant mass; placed restrictive use environmental covenants in on-base areas; promulgated site-specific standards protective of residential uses.
The third Five Year Review is now being prepared by LAC on behalf of the AFCEC. The Five-Year Review will be available for review in early 2019 on the Air Force administrative record:
PLEASE NOTE WEBSITE ADDRESS: http://afcec.publicadmin-record.us.af.mil/Search.aspx
The document will also be available at the LAC library located at 7921 Southpark Plaza, Suite 109, Littleton, CO, by appointment.
|If you have any questions, would like more information about the remedies or would like to be interviewed as part of the Lowry Air Force Base Five Year Review process, please contact:

The Diary of Anne Frank
by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett

On June 12, 1942, a young Jewish girl named Anne Frank received a diary for her 13th birthday.
In her diary she recounts the two arduous years that she, her parents, sister and four others spent in hiding in the sealed-off back rooms of an Amsterdam office building in order to avoid arrest by the Nazis. Tragically, in August 1944, their hiding place was revealed, and they were taken into custody. Anne Frank died in the concentration camp of Bergen-Belsen in March 1945, just two months before Holland was freed, and three months before her sixteenth birthday. Otto Frank, her father and sole survivor, returned after the war and was given Anne’s diary.
This play is a dramatization of Anne Frank’s own diaries, her extraordinary account of the years she endured in hiding with family and friends in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam. It takes place in the “Secret Annex” – the small attic hideaway in Amsterdam where Anne, her sister Margot, and her parents lived with four others in complete seclusion for two years. Meet Miep Gies and Mr. Kraler, the brave people who risked their own lives while saving the ones of those they hid.
The diary, first published in the US in 1952, and considered to be one of the single most important documents of World War II, has been translated into 55 languages and has captured the hearts of readers all over the world. It was first dramatized and produced on Broadway in 1955 and won virtually every theatre award including both the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award for Best Drama. The play was later made into an Oscar-winning film.
The cast includes Lili Shuger (Anne Frank), Shane Delavan (Otto Frank), Julie K. Wolf (Mrs. Frank), Mariel Goffredi (Margot Frank), Claude Diener (Mr. VanDaan), Erin Bell (Mrs. VanDaan), Benji Dienstfrey (Peter VanDaan), Leroy Leonard (Mr. Dussell), Stephanie Kidd (Mieip Gies) and Eddie Schumacher (Mr. Kraler).
