Arsenal cleanup plan expanded|
By Bob Downing Akron Beacon Journal (OH) May 25, 2005
Six more contaminated sites at the now-closed Ravenna Army Ammunition Plant are slated to be cleaned up in 2007.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded a $2.4 million contract to Virginia-based Science Applications International Corp. to expand the environmental cleanup of the 21,419-acre complex in eastern Portage and western Trumbull counties.
The new work will deal only with contaminated soils, but the six areas are not expected to have a major impact on ground or surface water, according to company spokeswoman Laura Obloy.
The cleanup is being managed by the Army and supervised by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.
