The Gyeonggi Provincial Government said Sunday that it will conduct an investigation into areas around 28 U.S. military camps in the province to check whether soil and underground waters have been contaminated with dioxin and other harmful chemicals.

The regional government’s announcement comes amid allegations that American soldiers buried hazardous materials inside bases across the country.

The U.S. built a total of 51 bases in Gyeonggi Province. Of the 51, 23 have been returned to the Korean government, while the remaining 28 are still occupied and used by U.S. military.
