Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Moffett Field's (CA) Hangar One dispute
Hangar One now under 'formal dispute' 
Navy, EPA continue battle over historic landmark

The Navy raised eyebrows last week during the latest salvo in the fight
over Hangar One. 

The director of the Navy's nationwide clean-up efforts sent a harshly
worded Feb. 25 letter to officials of the U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) and regional water board. Kimberly Kesler accused the
regulatory agencies of ignoring procedures in their zeal to force the
Navy to take responsibility for the pollution inside the hangar. 

Ever since the toxic contamination was discovered inside the massive
structure a year and a half ago, the Moffett Field landmark has sat
lifeless, enjoyed only by highway travelers and airplane passengers
catching a passing glance of the exterior. 

In recent months, nearly 30 different groups, including the two agencies
overseeing the Moffett Field cleanup, have attacked the Navy for its
claim that the inside of the building is not its problem. But when EPA
and regional water quality officials gave up on resolving the argument
informally, the Navy responded critically.
