South Weber gets warning from ecologist on possible Hill pollution

SOUTH WEBER - Dr. John Carter, technical adviser to the South Weber Coalition, addressed the city council Tuesday about possible Hill Air Force Base contamination in the city.

Carter, who holds a doctorate in ecology from Utah State University, said the contamination, which likely started during World War II or earlier with the dumping of chemical warfare products, flares, bullets, herbicides and other materials, is being monitored by Hill.

The base is using the Monitored Natural Attenuation Program, Carter said, which means that any ground pollution will be contained by natural sources, such as using water in trenches to dilute chemicals and a clay/slurry wall around part of the base to prevent leakage.
