COLORADO – The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment is suing the US Army.

The department claims that dangerous chemicals are still leaking into the groundwater at Rocky Mountain Arsenal.

The Denver Post reports that the state wants the Army to install or modify the existing treatment system to prevent pollutants from contaminating the water.

The Army says federal authorities should regulate the site, not the state.
