Are the bombs going away?

Posted on August 30 2010 by admin

The USACE is now in process of accepting public comments on the work plan that they have put together for the Ocotillo Wells and Borrego Springs areas for the investigation and removal of munitions that were left from the use of this land during WWII for a practice bombing range.

The plan and methods of contact can be viewed HERE

The deadline for comments is September 27, 2010

Personally I think that there is far too little investigation going on in Ocotillo Wells.  The only area south of the 78 that is being investigated is Halfhill Dry Lake.  I have personally seen practice bombs in the Badlands as well as rocket motors just off of Main Street.  It would be interesting to see if anyone else has seen munitions on their property.
