November 27, 1987

The Army has agreed to pay $9.1 million in damages and build and operate an $8.8-million filtration system for New Brighton, Minn., whose water supply was contaminated by chemicals from an ammunition plant. The new system will provide clean water to the city's 25,000 residents, supplementing water drawn from new city wells. New Brighton was forced to dig the wells after contamination by chemicals from the Twin Cities Army Ammunition Plant was detected in 1981.
