"News & Issues" piece on a controversy concerning the removal of dangerous paint
"News & Issues" piece on a controversy concerning the removal of dangerous paint used at the Naval Computer and Telecommunications Station in Cutler. In 1996 the Navy awarded the $8.9 million contract to Abhe & Svoboda of Prior Lake, Minn. Now, already beset by delay, cost overruns and the death of a worker, the Navy is running into opposition from environmental activists as the paint is removed from its antenna farm, which is the largest collection of very-low frequency antennas in the world. The activists claim the public has been shut out of the process and that better containment methods should be used to shield residents from airborne paint chips containing lead and PCBs.
