Army to examine Breckinridge for any environmental hazards

The Gleaner (KY)
August 19, 2004

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is planning to take a close look at
properties that once made up Camp Breckinridge, with an eye toward
cleaning up any environmental hazards that might be discovered. 

A press release from the corps' Louisville District office says the
initial phase of the project, scheduled this fall, will involve simply
taking a look around. That phase, called a preliminary assessment,
involves reviewing existing documents, collecting historical
information, and evaluating evidence of possible contamination by
visually inspecting the property. 

 "The objective of the preliminary assessment is to identify areas that
may pose a threat to human health or the environment and may need
further study," according to the press release. "The visual inspection
will not involve any digging into the ground or removal of soil." 

In order for the corps to do the visual inspection, a right-of-entry
form must be signed by the current property owners to allow the corps
and its contractor access to the property.
