Superfund Site: BRANDYWINE DRMO
BRANDYWINE, MD

Superfund Site Profile

SITE BACKGROUND

The 80-acre Brandywine DRMO site is located in Brandywine, Maryland. From 1943 to 1987, several U.S. Navy (USN) and U.S. Air Force (USAF) installations used the former Defense Reutilization and Marketing Office (DRMO) property to store wastes and excess governmental materials. Site activities contaminated soil and groundwater with hazardous chemicals. Removal actions to address contaminated soil and interim remedial actions to address contaminated groundwater are complete. Additional investigations are underway to better characterize the source of dense non-aqueous phase liquid (DNAPL) in groundwater.
