SIOUX CITY, Iowa - After three decades of waiting for the federal government to clean up an underground mess at the airport, Sioux City's closer to getting the job done on their own.

Monday night, they hired a company to evaluate the pools of jet fuel underneath Sioux Gateway's airfield.

The source of that contamination is underground fuel tanks that date back to World War Two.

When the leak was first discovered in the early 80's, the city expected the federal government to pick-up the tab.
