Naval Air Station Banana River Off-Base Disposal Area

In the 1940s, the Navy utilized land south of the base known as the Naval Air Station Banana River Off-Base Disposal Area Formerly Used Defense Site.  It is approximately 50 miles southeast of Orlando in Brevard County, south of Patrick Air Force Base and north of the City of Satellite Beach.  For more information, please see Site Summary fact sheet.

Status Update

Following the completion of the Preliminary Assessment Report for the Naval Air Station Banana River Off-Base Disposal Area, we requested and received approval for a project on July 25, 2020, and we are now seeking funding for a Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study.  Upon receipt of funding, we will complete the necessary steps to award a contract for the Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study and will let you know when it is awarded.  For more information, please see the revised Site Summary fact sheet and the Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study fact sheet.

Due to health and safety concerns during the coronavirus pandemic, rather than an in-person meeting, we will post a presentation explaining the project, the Preliminary Assessment, Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study process, and the path forward.   The link to the presentation will be on the project website (www.saj.usace.army.mil/BananaRiver) on Wednesday, August 12, 2020.  As always, you can reach us by calling 800.710.5184 or emailing FUDS.Florida@usace.army.mil.
