Camp Bonneville cleanup to begin

The Columbian (WA)
April 25, 2004

The Army this summer will begin digging up ordnance and other pollutants
buried in a landfill at Camp Bonneville.

The Army stopped training at the 3,840-acre base north of Camas in 1995,
but its plans to turn over the land to Clark County for a regional park
have stalled because unexploded munitions and other pollution riddle the

Tests have found that explosive compounds, including cancer-causing
ammonium perchlorate and RDX, have leached from ammunition into
groundwater at a spot the Army refers to as Landfill 4/Detonation Area

In that spot near the camp's northern boundary, soldiers destroyed
munitions by detonating them and then buried the remains.

The contamination has spread about 300 feet but remains inside the
camp's boundary, said Eric Waehling, the base environmental coordinator.
