Corps of Engineers, NU to clean radioactive waste from research field|
By KATIE NIELAND January 23, 2006
Students enrolled in the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources use the Agriculture Research and Development Center to study genetics, reproduction and nutrition with animals in a farm-like setting.
But potentially hazardous waste – which has become illegal over time – is buried beneath the center’s fields near Mead, just west of Omaha.
To rid the research area of the waste, it is estimated that at least $6 million dollars is needed. The only problem: The money for the project wasn’t figured into this year’s budget.
The waste dates back to World War II and the Korean War, when the area was used to make artillery at the former Nebraska Ordnance Plant, said Dan Duncan, director of the center near Mead.
