Lead can stay in Badger Ammo soil, DNR says|
RON SEELY Wisconsin State Journal July 26, 2006
The state Department of Natural Resources is allowing the U.S. Army to leave lead in the soil at its Badger Army Ammunition Plant at levels that may pose a risk to children, according to a watchdog group monitoring the cleanup at the defunct plant.
But officials with the DNR said Tuesday the agency is asking that the most contaminated soils of the plant be cleaned to the 30 ppm level. Eileen Pierce, who is overseeing cleanup of the plant for the DNR, said the original standard of 30 ppm, set in January 1995, remains the standard for the "most heavily contaminated soils."
