Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Asbestos at Cornhusker Ammo Plant (NE)
[Army Ammunition Plants historically have contained large amounts of
asbestos materials. Does anyone know if there has ever been a systematic
search for disposal sites like the ones mentioned in this article? - LS]

More contamination found at CAAP

Another pit of asbestos has been discovered at the Cornhusker Army
Ammunition Plant west of Grand Island.

The pit was found about two weeks ago just west of Load Line 2, north of
Old Potash Highway, said Joe Laird, CAAP project manager for the Army
Corps of Engineers.

It's the third pit announced in as many months. Two other asbestos pits,
significantly smaller than the latest discovery, were uncovered along
Load Line 1, just west of 60th Road. The existence of those pits was
announced in January.
