U.S. Senator urges army to clean-up Lone Star KTBS TV-3 News February 11, 2013Hooks, TX - A U.S. Senator is requesting the army make good on it's commitment to clean-up a former ammunitions facility in East Texas.
The site has been designated for redevelopment and officials say projects are being hindered by the lack of clean-up.
Nearly 8,900 acres of Lone Star Army Ammunition Plant was transferred to the TexAmericas center in 2010, at least 1,100 of those prime development acres were expected to be cleaned-up by 2011.
"Some of the work has been completed, but the vast majority of it has not. The property is still pretty encumbered by permit regime that makes it very difficult to sell," said Bill Cork, TexAmericas Executive Director.
