Subject: [CPEO-MEF] WATER: Wisconsin approves water treatment system for Badger neighbors
Badger Ammunition cleanup update

February 24, 2012

The Department of Natural Resources has given preliminary approval to allow the U.S. Army to construct a public drinking water system for people who live close to the Badger Army Ammunition Center near Baraboo.

The DNR’s move comes over the objections of a local group, which says the Army’s efforts fall short.

Constructed during the Second World War, the munitions facility has been inactive since 1977. Many of the buildings have been torn down and plans are underway to convey the sprawling facility to DNR for public use and to other parties. Here's a story on cleanup efforts by the Journal Sentinel in 2010.
