The Navajo Nation, Zuni Pueblo, the state of New Mexico and the Army have finalized a restoration plan for the former Fort Wingate, which closed in 1993, as AP reported. The two tribes and the state reached an agreement with the federal government in 2022 “to settle claims that land, water and cultural resources were negatively impacted by hazardous substances at the site,” according to the report. Much of the settlement will be spent on environmental restoration.
