Nearly $10M in over 10 years for contamination cleanup By Haidee V. Eugenio Saipan Tribune (Northern Marianas) August 26 2014Delegate Gregorio Kilili C. Sablan (Ind-MP) said the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has spent $9.5 million over the last 10 years to clean up hazardous waste left behind by the U.S. military in the CNMI.
The agency has also set aside $4 million this year for the cleanup of three areas contaminated with leftover military activities during and right after World War II on Saipan, the highest annual funding of its kind for the CNMI in recent period.
Sablan said work on three of the formerly used defense sites, or FUDS, is completed. These include those in I’Denni, Tanapag, and Kagman Airfield.
