The corps' feasibility study submitted in December examines different ways to clean up the site, said Jane Francis, a geological supervisor with the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality.
"Before we put the cleanup system in we need to collect a little more additional information on the hydrology and geology out there," Francis said.
The corps has proposed a pump-and-treat system in the middle of the 10- to 14-mile-long plume of trichloroethylene (TCE) in groundwater to cut off the contamination.
