Superfund Site: BANGOR ORDNANCE DISPOSAL (USNAVY)
Superfund Site Profile
The 12-acre Bangor Ordnance Disposal site is located on the Bangor Naval Submarine Base in Silverdale, Washington. The Navy used a 6-acre part of the site, called the Burn Area, to detonate and incinerate various ordnance materials. Other site activities included disposal of Burn Area wastes at the two adjacent Debris Areas. These activities contaminated soil, leachate, surface water and groundwater with hazardous chemicals. Following cleanup, operation and maintenance activities are ongoing.
