So far, contamination testing only at old Kingman gunnery If soil cleanup is needed at World War II site, more funding necessary by Ryan Abella Kingman Daily Miner (AZ) September 11, 2014KINGMAN - The next phase in the ongoing cleanup of the former military skeet ranges just outside of Kingman is slated to begin next month with an investigation and study of approximately 284 residential properties through October 2016.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers presented their plan at Mohave Community College Tuesday evening.
"We're moving into a new phase of the project," said Daniel Calderon, senior public affairs specialist for the Corps of Engineers.
The 15 skeet ranges were once part of the Kingman Ground-to-Ground Gunnery Range. They were used extensively for training during World War II, and more than 36,000 soldiers trained there between 1943 and 1946. Soldiers would start on the skeet ranges shooting clay targets before working their way up to shooting out of B-17s and other bombers.
