http://www.latimes.com/news/state/updates/lat_bases000501.htm Extensive Pollution Stalls Base Conversions Development: Total cleanup cost at the 12 worst California sites is expected to be $3.6 billion. Special to The Times After a decade-long struggle to weave dozens of former military bases into California communities, pollution left behind by the armed forces has complicated and stalled ambitious plans to convert the 12 most heavily contaminated bases into industrial parks, museums, airports, housing and other civilian uses. These facilities, representing 41% of the state's closed bases, are plagued by some of the worst pollution in America. Although at least $1.6 billion has been spent on environmental problems at the sites, records and interviews show that none have been fully converted to civilian use. Not one has been fully cleaned up and, on several, not all of the pollution has been evaluated. You can find archived listserve messages on the CPEO website at http://www.cpeo.org/lists/index.html.
