Kennewick Engineering Firm Selected For Depot Land Planning



July 9, 2009


UMATILLA, OREGON -- The Umatilla Chemical Land Redevelopment Authority has selected Kennewick Engineering Firm, Dana Engineering, to draft a plan for the depot's land once the incineration of chemical weapons there is complete.


Umatilla County Commissioner Bill Hansell says they've requested a 704,000 dollar grant from the Federal Office of Economic Assessment. Once it's approved, Dana Engineering, can begin their eight month long draft plan. The plan will require research, studies and community input on what the land should be used for. Hansell says weapons destruction and incinerator removal should be completed by 2012 or 2013.
