July 2021 Update:
When: A Public Meeting will be held on July 29th, 6:00 to 8:00pm
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), is seeking public input on a Proposed Plan for cleanup activities at the Fort Hancock Formerly Used Defense Site (FUDS) in Monmouth County, New Jersey.
USACE has identified unacceptable explosive hazards due to munitions and explosives of concern that may remain within Munition Response Sites at the Fort Hancock FUDS. In coordination with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, USACE is proposing to mitigate these hazards by implementing the preferred remedial alternatives in three areas of the site. The Proposed Plan summarizes all the remedial alternatives evaluated and discusses the reasons for choosing the preferred alternative.

The goal of gathering information through presentation of the PP and the public comment period is to better understand the community’s awareness of the cleanup activity proposed in the PP based upon years of investigation and study, and to determine if the public is in agreement with the PP of site cleanup action presented by the USACE. Public comments will be used in development of a Public Responsiveness Summary that will guide USACE’s future cleanup actions onsite and in coordination with the community.
