The Oregon Military Department is asking the federal government for $21.6 million to clean the state’s toxic armories.

The money would pay for cleanings at 10 lead-contaminated armories across the state. The state’s request to the National Guard Bureau follows an 18-month investigation by The Oregonian/OregonLive that revealed widespread lead dust problems in armories nationwide.

The investigation found Oregon’s armories among the dirtiest in the country, polluted by high levels of lead from years of poor maintenance in the buildings’ indoor firing ranges.
