DBS&A has been awarded a contract to support the NMED in determining the extent of PFAS impacts to surface water and groundwater in the vicinity of Cannon and Holloman Air Force Bases in Curry and Otero Counties, New Mexico. DBS&A will assist with defining the extent of contamination and developing a clean-up remedy that reduces risks to human health and the environment.
As part of ongoing efforts to support our local communities, DBS&A staff generously donated items and gift cards to an “adopted” family from PB&J Family Services whose mission is to help at-risk children to grow and develop to their full potential in nurturing families within a supportive community.
