Subject: [CPEO-MEF] MUNITIONS, CLOSURE: Camp Bonneville (WA) settlement
County to approve Camp Bonneville cleanup settlement

The slow conversion of Camp Bonneville from U.S. Army training base to regional park will mark a small milestone Tuesday as Clark County commissioners are expected to approve a settlement agreement with a contractor and two subcontractors.

In 2006, Clark County hired Bonneville Conservation, Restoration and Renewal Team, Michael Baker Jr. Inc and MKM Engineers Inc. to clean up the 3,840-acre property, about six miles north of Camas.

Amid disputes over the cleanup, which proved more extensive than initially thought, work was suspended in September 2009.

The agreement calls for BCRRT and its president, Mike Gage, to leave the site July 15. The county would then lease the property from BCRRT rent-free for a year while it negotiates for a new cleanup funding agreement with the Army, said Jeff Mize, spokesman for the county’s public works department.
