Citizen Group Says Fuel Spill Efforts Too Little, Too Late

Thursday morning on the KUNM Call-In Show we'll be talking about what's being done to clean up the estimated eight million gallons of fuel that leaked from an underground pipe at Kirtland Air Force Base over the course of decades.  Officials tracking the flow of the fuel and dissolved pollutants say no contamination has reached Albuquerque's drinking water wells.  And they say they are working as fast as possible to clean the spill before that happens. But a group called Citizen Action New Mexico isn’t buying it.  KUNM’s Sidsel Overgaard spoke with Citizen Action’s Dave McCoy to find out more.
