Dunnage Disposal Site 1

MRP Site UXO3 (formerly Site 34a) occupies approximately 3.3 acres in the north-central portion of the installation. The site encompasses two drainage swales that join and flow to the southwest. This “Y” shaped drainage area was used for surface disposal and burial of dunnage and munitions from 1942 until 1978. A limited visual survey of the area revealed various waste munitions, MECs and munitions scrap, resulting in sampling and analysis of soils for metals and explosives. COCs include metals, explosives, white phosphorous, perchlorates, VOCs and SVOCs. A Remedial Investigation is currently being planned to delineate the nature and extent of contamination and the potential explosives hazard from any munitions debris.
