Fort Sheridan

http://www.familyjeweler.com/rdx.htm  This is a website I created which
is devoted to the unwillingness of the Army and U.S. EPA to conduct a
risk assessment into the million rounds of artillery fired into Lake
Michigan during the 1940's, 10% of which is estimated to be unexploded.
The chemicals RDX, TNT, and Tetryl are present in great quantities less
than a mile from the water intake pipes of Highwood and Highland Park.

I recently sent a formal petition to the EPA per the National
Contingency Plan under CERCLA to conduct a preliminary assessment. We
shall see how they plan to respond to this.
