QE Test Area

MRP Site UXO1, Quality Evaluation (QE) Test Area, encompasses approximately 60 acres in the southeastern portion of the installation.  It has been used for a variety of purposes, and, therefore has four subareas which require individual evaluation.  These sites include munitions burn and disposal areas in operation from 1942-1985, a drop test tower in operation from the 1950s through 1989, a weapons firing and target area , and a building materials disposal area.  A Site Inspection was completed in May 2010 and a Remedial Investigation is currently underway to delineate the nature and extent of any munitions and munitions constituents.  A Feasibility Study is also being prepared to evaluate the remedial alternatives for mitigating any hazards and contamination associated with the site.
