Status Update

Due to health and safety concerns during the pandemic, rather than an in-person meeting, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will post a video explaining the Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study process for the Off-Base Disposal Area and the path forward. The link to the presentation will be posted here on Friday, November 5, 2021. Please submit questions and comments about the presentation or the Remedial Investigation process to FUDS.Florida@usace.army.mil by November 19, 2021. We will post responses here.

We are still seeking rights-of-entry from property owners within and near the study area who have not yet responded, in order to conduct the Remedial Investigation. If you received a form and have not yet returned it, please do so as soon as possible. 

If you have questions or wish to be added to our email distribution list, please email FUDS.Florida@usace.army.mil or call 800.710.5184.
