Lowry answers owed
Monday, August 19, 2002 - The U.S. Air Force must tell Colorado health
officials all it knows about what military work took place at the former
Lowry Air Force Base.

The 1,866-acre site on the Denver-Aurora border is being redeveloped
into houses and retail and office space. The Air Force hopes the project
will serve as a national model of how to convert surplus military bases
to civilian use.

But Lowry's redevelopment can't meet that lofty goal unless all
potential hazardous substances are thoroughly cleansed from its soils
and groundwater. Doing so will require the Air Force to report what kind
of military operations took place at the base from World War II to its
closure in 1994. Knowing what work was done there will, in turn, reveal
what chemicals might lurk in the soil and groundwater. There's no known
public-health hazard at the Lowry redevelopment. Instead, concern
focuses on how little information the Air Force has given the Colorado
Department of Public Health and Environment about areas slated for
future construction projects.
