Progress made in ordnance cleanup north of Helena
Question of the Day
HELENA, Mont. (AP) - About 4,000 acres north of Helena have been surveyed in an effort to remove unexploded ordnance remaining from live-fire exercises that ended in the area nearly 60 years ago.
Sundi West, manager of the Montana Army National Guard unexploded ordnance program, says 160 unexploded projectiles have been removed from the area in the North Helena Valley, and cleanup of the nearly 5,000-acre site is expected to be completed in 2017.
The Helena Independent Record reports (http://bit.ly/1chkMiv ) the unexploded ordnance date from 1947 when the Army National Guard was reconstituted and told to negotiate with landowners for live-fire practice areas because there was no land large enough for artillery at Fort Harrison.
West says the 163rd Regimental Combat Team used landowners’ properties north of Helena until 1955.
