CHEYENNE - State scientists will meet with a team from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on Wednesday to discuss a feasibility study governing cleanup of contamination from an abandoned Cold War missile site near Cheyenne.

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.
