School of Mines, Air Force partner on environment
RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — The South Dakota School of Mines & Technology in Rapid City will work with the Air Force Civil Engineer Center at the Ellsworth base on environmental stewardship goals.
The school’s experts in ecology, hydrology, environmental engineering and other disciplines will help the Air Force clean up contaminated sites, reduce or prevent future pollution and comply with environmental rules and law at its installations.
Mines President Jim Rankin says the partnership boosts top-tier science and engineering research and education at the school while supporting the Department of Defense efforts on environmental challenges.
