Cleanup may set national standard
Kennedy sees implications in Guard's concession for other military
training bases.

In what federal legislators and military officials call a "watershed"
time in the cleanup of the Massachusetts Military Reservation, some
want the suddenly cooperative cleanup effort to set a national precedent.

Federal lawmakers yesterday applauded the Army for admitting that
heavy-weapon training at the Cape base was a likely cause of groundwater

But they warned that the issues raised in the Upper Cape could have
implications at bases nationwide.

"These findings obviously raise concerns about other military training in
every other part of the United States," Sen. Edward Kennedy said in a
statement released last night.
