Columbus, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio's environmental agency says it is reviewing a decision to give federal stimiulus money to help clean up a cold war-era weapons site that may not be contaminated.
The state EPA has proposed giving $1 million from President Barack Obama's economic stimulus package to a private company to treat groundwater at the site near Ashtabula in northeast Ohio.
The company says contaminated soil remains.
But the U.S. Energy Department says its cleanup program ended two years ago and that there are no outstanding environmental issues.
The Ohio EPA says it is working to verify the status of the property.
No stimulus money has gone out, and the agency hasn't determined if the project will stay on its final list.
A decision is expected in about two weeks.
