County hires new contractor to resume Camp Bonneville cleanup

Clark County sought a new contractor and accepted ownership of the 3,840-acre former military post in 2011 after the U.S. Army agreed to provide the funding for the next phase of the cleanup, with the understanding that additional funding will be needed to complete all work at the site.

The upcoming work involves removing munitions of explosive concern and other hazardous materials left over from 85 years of military training.

Weston will need to obtain approval from the Washington State Department of Ecology before beginning work.
