CAMP MINDEN, LA (KSLA/WAFB) - Time has run out for the US Army and it is now in violation after not meeting a deadline to comply with a cleanup order at Camp Minden.

The deadline set by the Environmental Protection Agency was midnight.

Inspectors found M6 propellant improperly stored at Camp Minden back in 2012. Since that time, Louisiana and Webster Parish officials have looked for ways to get rid of it.

The Environmental Protection Agency ordered the US Army to clean up the material.

Officials are waiting on the US Army to submit a letter of intent.
