HILL AIR FORCE BASE - It's no secret that environmental cleanups cost money. Hill Air Force Base officials expect to spend $21.4 million on Hill's environmental restoration project for fiscal 2010.

That's $70,000 higher than the current year's budget, part of the money the U.S. Air Force has set aside for its bases that have been named as Superfund sites.

For more than a half century, groundwater plumes contaminated with potential carcinogens have been seeping from the base into seven surrounding communities: Layton, South Weber, Riverdale, Roy, Sunset, Clinton and Clearfield. Other contaminated areas have been found on the base, as well.
