Camp Bonneville cleanup is still stalled for talks Army, county trying to divide responsibility By Erik Robinson The Columbian (WA) April 25, 2011Army and Clark County officials are trying to forge a new agreement for converting a former artillery range into a future county park.
Next month marks a year since Clark County sidelined its primary cleanup contractor after the removal of unexploded ordnance stalled over cost overruns and funding disputes. In 2006, the Army provided $28.6 million under a fixed-price contract.
The county's contractor found and removed hundreds of unexploded munitions, but much remains to be done.
The Army greatly underestimated the environmental pollution and extent of old munitions on the 3,840-acre site in east Clark County. County officials said they are negotiating with Army representatives on what it will cost to finish the cleanup.
