The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Announces the Public Comment Period on the Proposed Plan for the East Fork Valley Munitions Response Site, Camp Hale, Colorado.

A Proposed Plan (PP) has been developed for the East Fork Valley MRS which summarizes the alternatives being considered for remediating the military munitions contamination at the site, and proposes a preferred remedy. The preferred remedy proposed for the East Fork Valley MRS includes physical removal of any remaining hazardous items from areas of the MRS that are likely to be used by the public or where the US Forest Service is planning construction projects. Protection in areas that are not typically used by the public will be provided by land use controls. The public comment period ends August 24, 2015.

Past Community Involvement Information & Activities
Since August 2000, articles about munitions-related activities performed at Camp Hale have appeared in various local newspapers, three television interviews were conducted, and two public meetings were held. Community interviews were conducted during the weeks of January 27, 2003 and February 3, 2003 as part of developing a Community Involvement Plan for ordnance-related work to be done at Camp Hale. This Plan outlines information outreach for the project and can be reviewed at the Administrative Record location or on the Maps/Documents page. Additional interviews with area users were conducted in September 2009 as part of the IRMP communication strategy development.
