CWM Chemical Services wants the federal government to clean up radiological contamination on a part of its property it is considering for a new hazardous waste landfill.

In a letter sent to Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates and Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., CWM has requested radiological contamination be removed from a piece of former federal land that now is part of its Town of Porter facility.

"If the Department of Defense/ Army Corps of Engineers fail to address this contamination in a timely fashion," the April letter from District Manager Michael D. Mahar reads, "CWM will do so and will seek to recover all of its costs from the United States."
