Established in 1913, Camp Grayling Joint Manuever Training Center (JMTC) is the largest National Guard training facility in the United States, covering 147,000 acres spread across three counties. Training programs have included instruction regarding aircraft fires and how to put them out. In the 1970s, aqueous film forming foam (AFFF) was introduced for firefighting purposes, but it contained PFAS and over time leached into the subsurface of the facility and surrounding areas.

Cascade was brought in to conduct soil and groundwater sampling to help the client delineate the extent of PFAS contamination. Learn about the challenges encountered on this project and how our crews overcame them.
