WisBusiness Press Releases (WI) August 26, 2011Citizens for Safe Water Around Badger: Badger Advisory Board appeal successful
The U.S. Department of Army has reversed a local installation decision which denied a request for federal funding to hire an independent technical advisor for communities dealing with contamination from Badger Army Ammunition Plant.
The successful appeal by the Badger Restoration Advisory Board (RAB) sets a national precedent. Army officials said that they are not aware of any other community that has formally challenged a decision under the federal Technical Assistance for Public Participation (TAPP) grant program.
The Army's August 5 letter also approved a waiver request making $25,000 available to the community board which includes representatives of local, county, state, tribal and federal government.
