Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Ravenna Ammo Plant (OH) cleanup

Six more contaminated sites at the now-closed Ravenna Army Ammunition Plant are slated to be cleaned up in 2007.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded a $2.4 million contract to Virginia-based Science Applications International Corp. to expand the environmental cleanup of the 21,419-acre complex in eastern Portage and western Trumbull counties.

The new work will deal only with contaminated soils, but the six areas are not expected to have a major impact on ground or surface water, according to company spokeswoman Laura Obloy.

The cleanup is being managed by the Army and supervised by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.
