Wyoming officials call for timeout on missile silo cleanup

CHEYENNE - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will honor a state request to temporarily halt the cleanup of groundwater contamination at an abandoned Atlas missile site west of Cheyenne.

The Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality called for the timeout pending the collection of data to determine the exact location and movement of the underground contamination plume, which some people fear threatens the city’s water supply.

Kevin Frederick is the director of the DEQ’s Water Quality Division. He said the agency met with corps officials at least a year ago to express concerns about how the corps proposed to deal with the pollution.

"They seemed to us to be intent on finalizing a remedy that involved installing a hydraulic interceptor series of pumping wells roughly in the middle of the groundwater plume," Frederick said.
