Latest update shows RDX plume continuing to deplete

Cattle feedlots and water extraction wells in northwest Grand Island are
helping clean up contaminated groundwater.

In fact, the feedlots owned by T & E Cattle Co. and extraction wells
installed by the Army have reduced the amount of the explosive RDX in
groundwater there to a level that is safe for drinking water.

"The RDX is below 2 parts per billion," said Mary Wellensiek, the
Cornhusker Army Ammunition Plant representative.

The 2 parts per billion is what is recommended by the Environmental
Protection Agency as being safe for drinking water.
