Federal officials estimate the cost to clean up an old World War II bombing range west of Albuquerque, NM to be as high as $22 million. According to a report by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, $9 million would be needed immediately to clean up the most hazardous areas especially since "the city is developing right over the top of the target," said David Henry, a geologist for the Army Corps. "That's the hazard. That's within the next five years."
