Former munition site in Ankeny to be cleaned up

Des Moines Register (IA)
February 10, 2009

Plans to clear environmental contaminants from the 38-acre former landfill and lagoon in the Prairie Trail development in Ankeny took another step forward last week.

The Environmental Protection Agency's settlement says that John Deere Des Moines Works of Deere & Company, the city of Ankeny, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will jointly spend an estimated $9.1 million on cleanup at the site.

The EPA's decision last week cements an agreement worked out by the parties involved last fall that roughs out costs. Ankeny City Attorney Amy Beattie said officials won't be sure of the exact bill breakdown until bids are finalized for the work.
