Army Ammunition Plant
As Citizens for Safe Water Around Badger (CSWAB) board member Charlie Wilhelm said, “Years ago, no one realized the long-term environmental effects from munitions. My grandkids are going to be living in this area and drinking the water where Badger [Army Ammunition Plant] used to be—it’s time to clean it up.”

As a direct result of CSWAB’s work, the U.S. EPA is scheduled to publish a provisional peer-reviewed toxicity value for the carcinogenic explosive DNT in the coming months. This move will offer federal and state regulators with the leverage needed to require testing and cleanup of this carcinogenic compound at U.S. military bases, both here and abroad.
