FOREST PARK - Contaminated groundwater at a former U.S. Army base won't hinder Forest Park's plans for redevelopment.

The contamination isn't news to city leaders, who have been working with the federal government on plans to clean up the area before commercial  and industrial businesses set up shop inside the 1,170-acre facility. The city is poised to buy the former base, which opened Atlanta Quartermaster Depot in 1941, for about $30 million.

During Wednesday's meeting of the Forest Park/Fort Gillem Implementation Local Redevelopment Authority, Executive Director Fred Bryant told members that he went to Washington, D.C., days ago to discuss the cleanup.
