Another 7,000 acres of old arsenal cleaned|
By Ann Imse Rocky Mountain News (CO) December 20, 2005
The Army and the Shell oil company have completed cleanup of another 7,000 acres of the Rocky Mountain Arsenal, the former chemical- weapons and pesticide plant northeast of Denver.
Officials expect that by spring they will begin the process of removing this land from the Superfund list and adding it to the existing 5,000- acre wildlife refuge on the site.
After the transfer, expected by autumn, the wildlife area will cover most of the Manhattan-size arsenal site, excluding 4,000 acres at the center that once contained more than 200 chemical-industrial buildings.
This was the most contaminated section, and cleanup will take another five to six years, said Charley Scharmann, the Army's civilian project manager.
