CHEYENNE -- State officials and local residents want the federal government to do more to address contaminated groundwater west of Cheyenne.

The concerns were brought up Thursday during a meeting updating the public on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineersâ progress to clean up - or at least contain - the contamination caused by a 1960s-era missile site.

Investigators discovered the presence of trichloroethylene, or TCE, during the 1990s in the groundwater near Belvoir Ranch, which was F.E. Warren Air Force Baseâs former Atlas Missile Site No. 4.

Spilled chemicals that were used to clean the silo has created a groundwater contamination plume that extends for about 10 miles to the east.
