Colorado missile sites nearing end of remediation plans Wyoming still waits for plan to address larger plume By TREVOR GRAFF Casper Star-Tribune (WY) November 3, 2014While Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality officials continue to push the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for answers at two former Atlas missile sites surrounding Cheyenne, neighboring Colorado is in the final stages of cleanup at its three contaminated sites.
The three sites, contaminated by operations conducted in the 1960s, are located in north-central Colorado, near Greeley and Fort Collins. Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment officials say remediation actions at the sites will be completed within a decade.
Contamination at the Colorado is much lower than that of Wyoming's Atlas Missile Site No. 3. The Colorado sites average a contamination level of 3,600 parts per billion trichlorethylene. At Site No. 3 in Wyoming, levels have reached more than 31,000 parts per billion.
