Agencies to talk Camp Bonneville cleanup



Clark County officials are inviting residents to talk about the ongoing Camp Bonneville munitions cleanup during an open house from 4 to 7 p.m. Oct. 17 at Vancouver Fire Station 4, 6701 N.E. 147th Ave.

A new contractor has been at the site since June working to remove unexploded munitions and hazardous materials from the former U.S. Army base east of Vancouver. Munitions include small-arms ammunition, artillery shells, shoulder-fired rockets and grenades.

The open house will provide residents a chance to speak with officials from Clark County, the Washington State Department of Ecology, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Weston Solutions Inc., the general contractor.
