A link to this report was shared with the CAC, so we are passing it along for your information. The latest report is for FY2010 and covers DoD activities in base cleanup including DERP FUDS programs (which include the LOOW), but does not appear to include FUSRAP (which is the program for cleanup of the NFSS).   The link is http://www.denix.osd.mil/arc/ARCFY2010.cfm

NFSS Balance of Plant Field Investigations, Second Round of Sampling
The Balance of Plant Operable Unit is designed to investigate and remediate as necessary all NFSS property outside of the IWCS.

— In 2013, the Corps reported on a series of field investigations to increase their understanding of several areas where higher concentrations have been identified, particularly near well OW11B and along historical water pipelines. The results of these investigations increase the knowledge of the location and source of this contamination and the potential for any transfer in the water lines.  

Several actions were also taken to ensure that the pipelines could not present additional concerns, and additional sampling was done to verify that sufficient information was available to understand all of the issues raised.

The Corps will be releasing its report on the second round of sampling shortly and has accepted the CAC invitation to attend this meeting and present its activities, findings, and conclusions to date.  

We hope that you will join us for the workshop and please share this announcement widely with anyone else who may be interested in the NFSS.

Every  Month TBD  6:30 - 8 PM
