FORT GEORGE G. MEADE, Md. (Oct. 11, 2012) -- The U.S. Army at Fort Meade is making available the Record of Decision for the former mortar range munitions response area, or MRA, at Fort Meade.
The U.S. Army and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency signed the ROD on Sept. 26 and Sept. 27, respectively.
The ROD for the former mortar range MRA documents the Army's plans for addressing risk posed by munitions and explosives of concern at the site. The response action includes land use controls with long-term monitoring.
The response action provides an optimum balance between the selection criteria and is protective of human health and the environment. All aspects of the remedy are subject to five-year reviews.
Copies of the ROD are available for review online at ftmeade.army.mil/environment. Click the links for Clean-up Program, Program Sites and Pesticide Shop.
Paper copies of the ROD are available at the Fort Meade Environmental Division Office at 239 Chisholm Ave. and at the West County Area Library in Odenton.
The Administrative Record file for the former mortar range MRA, which includes the ROD and all documents that formed the basis for the Army's selection of the response action, is available for public review at the Fort Meade Environmental Division Office and the West County Area Library.
