Navy will resume sinking of old war ships; 3 are on target list
Los Angeles Times : July 2, 2012

  Summary:  The U.S. Navy is to resume its ship sinking program, known as Sinkex, for the first time since its suspension due to environmental concerns. The Navy wants to target old vessels for live-ammunition exercises and assures of plans to clean the ships of pollutants and carcinogens such as polychlorinated biphenyls, better known as PCBs.

Environmental groups argue that if the training exercises resume, pollution from ships will contaminate the water and even poison the food chain. The groups believe that the Navy should clean up the vessels to higher standards than it is proposing. “The Navy shouldn’t be treated differently,” said Todd True, an attorney with Earthjustice, the public interest law firm that represents the groups. “They just keep putting toxics in the deep ocean and forget about them. But once they’re in the ocean, you can’t forget about them because they work their way into the ecosystem.”
