25 YEARS AGO: It was reported that the Army was getting ready to clean up zinc contamination at four waste-water ponds it maintained on the banks of the Stanislaus River near the Riverbank Army Ammunition plant. The cleanup was estimated to cost $1.2 million. In 1991, the army installed a ground-water treatment plant to remove cyanide and chromium. And in 1990, the plant made the Environmental Protection Agency's Superfund list of most-polluted sites.
