Subject: [CPEO-MEF] CLOSURE: City has concerns at Dallas Navy Plant (TX)
Navy Plan to Sell Polluted Dallas Land Doesn't Sit Well with City

Dallas News (TX)
December 2,  2011

After years of trying, the U.S. Navy is close to selling a stretch of severely polluted industrial land in western Dallas where military equipment and aircraft parts have been produced for decades.

But the city of Dallas has expressed serious concerns about the Navy’s proposed plan to clean up a toxic soup of heavy metals, petroleum, cyanide, herbicides and other poisons that permeate the land and groundwater and sediment bedding a small lake called Cottonwood Bay.

Dallas officials also wonder if the Navy’s plan doesn’t run afoul of a 2002 settlement between the city and the Navy over the cleanup of the adjacent Hensley Field.

Further complicating the issue is worry about the future of the Triumph-Vought aircraft manufacturing plant and 2,700 employees who work on the site.
