SITE BACKGROUND

The Parris Island Marine Corps Recruit Depot (Depot) is located in Port Royal, South Carolina. It is a United States (U.S.) Marine Corps recruit training facility. The U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. EPA and the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) have investigated site conditions.

 

The levels of contamination do not currently threaten people living and working on or near the Depot. By cleaning up and monitoring soils, sediments, and groundwater, enforcing land use controls, and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. EPA and SCDHEC continue to protect people and the environment from contamination.
