Subject: [CPEO-MEF] MUNITIONS, RADIATION: Iowa Army Ammunition Plant
Cleanup work on soil continues at IAAP

Burlington Hawk Eye (IA)
January 24, 2009

A 40-year time frame for cleaning up all of the toxins at the Iowa Army 
Ammunition Plant means the work of contractors seems to go at a snail's 

Their work is further hindered by the inability to work in the winter 
months, when the soil and water they need to test and clean are frozen 

However, in the five months since the IAAP Restoration Advisory Board 
last met, in their own small way each of the programs made progress. The 
board passed their updates on to the public during a meeting Thursday 

One of the newer projects to get under way at IAAP is the military 
munitions response program. Since about July, URS Corp. has had workers 
scanning every inch of the grounds using metal detectors.
