EPA questions necessity of blasts

MASHPEE - As National Guard officials work to create a system to ensure
the public is notified of open detonations like those that rocked the
Upper Cape this month, Environmental Protection Agency officials are
questioning whether the explosions violated the base's protection orders.

On Aug. 4, twin explosions intended to destroy 20 pieces of unexploded
ordnance at Camp Edwards shook windows and prompted a flood of 911 calls.

National Guard officials said last night at a public meeting in Mashpee
that they will put standards in place to make sure the public will know
about detonations in the future.
