Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Camp Ono consent decree
Judge grants money for clean up of Army facility

By CHRIS RICHARD Riverside Press-Enterprise (CA) March 15, 2005

LOS ANGELES - A federal judge approved a consent decree Monday that grants San Bernardino officials $69 million to clean up water contamination caused by an Army tent-cleaning facility during World War II.

San Bernardino will receive the money in about 90 days. The consent decree dictates how city officials will spend a one-time payout, which comes from a Justice Department fund used to pay legal claims against the government, over the next 50 years.

Judge Mariana R. Pfaelzer granted an approval after a 10-minute hearing in her Los Angeles courtroom, ending a decade of legal maneuvering.

"This has been a very long road," said Stacey Aldstadt, deputy general manager of San Bernardino's city water department, after the hearing. "We're just grateful to be here, although there's still a long road ahead."
