We awarded a contract on March 17, 2021, to begin the Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study.  The Remedial Investigation will allow us to determine the nature (what) and extent (where) of impacts attributable to the Navy’s disposal activities in the 1940s.  A Feasibility Study, if required, evaluates alternatives to address hazards the team identifies in the Remedial Investigation.  If you have any questions, concerns, or wish to receive email updates, please email or call 800.710.5184.  Click on Project Update Postcard - March 2021 below for more information.
