Part Three: The Military's Legacy: Cleaning Up the Water We Drink

Ten years ago, when the Cape and Islands NPR Station was just getting on the air, the cleanup of the water pollution from the Massachusetts Military Reservation was well underway. This year, the job is mostly done. That’s how the military sees it, anyway. And it’s how many Cape Cod residents see it. Since 1985, the Air Force has spent more than 676 million dollars in Federal Super Fund money on the clean-up, while the Army has spent about half that amount. But some people don’t agree with the government’s definition of clean, and they’re asking the question: how clean is clean enough?
