Announcements and Key Topics

The Navy, in cooperation with EPA and NCDEQ, has pioneered the use of numerous groundbreaking technologies to increase the effectiveness of cleanup efforts and to reduce risk. In recent years, groundwater cleanup methods have evolved to include more efficient and cost-effective approaches, such as permeable reactive barriers, electrical resistance heating of the subsurface to treat VOCs, soil mixing with zero valent iron to treat VOC source areas, air-sparging with horizontal wells, enhanced reductive dechlorination by injecting emulsified vegetable oil, monitored natural attenuation, and in-situ chemical oxidation by injecting strong oxidizers into the subsurface. These cleanup methods have proven to be highly effective in reducing contamination in source areas and remediating groundwater at the site.

Public Participation Opportunities

The Navy, NCDEQ, and EPA have conducted a range of community involvement activities to ask for community input and to make sure the public remains informed about site activities throughout the cleanup process. Outreach efforts have included public notices and informational meetings on cleanup process and activities, public meetings, and radio public service announcements. The Restoration Advisory Board (RAB) is a group of community members who meet quarterly and are briefed on site activities. The RAB provides the community a forum to exchange information with DOD and the regulators, and the opportunity to provide input regarding cleanup activities.
