Army Tour of Ft. Sheridan Landfills & Leachate Study Demo. Come and tour Ft. Sheridan Landfills 6 & 7 while the prairie grass flowers are in full bloom! The U.S. Army is announcing a tour of Landfills 6 & 7 at Fort Sheridan for June 13th 2007. The public will be allowed to view the caps and ask any questions. The tour will start at 6 PM in front of Building 100. See below for directions. There will also be a demonstration of the Leachate Pilot Study. An Illinois EPA approved Leachate Pilot Study was scheduled to begin on June 8th. This study will determine the effectiveness, safety and economical potential of sprinkling benign leachate (liquid product of the landfills) onto an area just adjacent to Building 100 to water grass and shrubs instead of transporting the leachate offsite for disposal. Details on the Pilot Study will be provided. Allow one hour for the tour and demonstration. To get to Building 100, start at Patten Road and 2nd Street. Go about 200 feet south to the first opening in the fence on your left. Make a left and take it east to the only building in view. This is Building 100. Parking is available. To reserve your name on the tour list, contact: Dr. Kurt Thomsen, Fort Sheridan Environmental Coordinator, 3155 Blackhawk Drive, Suite 17, Building 379, Fort Sheridan, IL 60037.; phone: 262-880-5272.
