Information Session

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) is conducting a Preliminary Assessment of the Naval Air Station Banana River Off-Base Disposal Area Formerly Used Defense Site to evaluate if further investigations are warranted. Memoranda and letters indicate the Navy used the area while the base was active (between 1942 and 1947). As the Navy prepared to deactivate the base, records  indicate teams from the public works department burned trash and other debris and buried what remained.

The approximately 32 acre Off-Base Disposal Area is about a third of a mile south of Patrick Air Force Base and is generally between Ocean Boulevard to the north, Clairbourne Avenue to the south, Pelican Drive to the west, and Highway A1A to the east.

We will be at Pelican Beach Club House (1495 A1A, Satellite Beach) Thursday, October 24, 2019, from 8:00 am until 8:00 pm to talk with anyone interested in our investigation. For more information, email FUDS.Florida@usace.army.mil or call 800.710.5184.
