    Former Eaker Air Force Base location on Arkansas Map

    England Air Force Base, Alexandria, Louisiana, was closed in 1992. It is now home to Alexandria International Airport, England Industrial Airpark & Community, the Louisiana State University Medical Center at Alexandria, housing units, restaurants, a golf course, and many other light industrial and commercial businesses. The property has been transferred to the England Economic & Industrial Development District. The U.S. Air Force Real Property Agency, in cooperation with EPA and the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (LDEQ), has conducted environmental restoration activities at many sites across the former base, including the former landfill areas, assorted spill sites, water towers, oil & water separators, underground storage tanks, fire training areas, and fuel pipelines. Long-term remediation of ground water contamination by chlorinated solvents is underway, and is being addressed under a permit from LDEQ.
