  3. Today’s Presentation • Munitions Response Site Prioritization Protocol Background • Terminology • Application • Community Involvement Alaska Forum on the Environment

  4. Munitions Response Site Prioritization Protocol Alaska Forum on the Environment

  5. The National Defense Authorization Act of Fiscal Year 2002 • Requires DOD to: • Create an inventory of MMR sites in the US and Territories [10 USC §2710(a)] • Create a protocol with which to prioritize sites within each facility/state/region and across the United States [10 USC §2710(b)] Alaska Forum on the Environment

  6. Site Eligibility • 10 USC §2710(a) list: sites that have demonstrated UXO, DMM, or MC contamination or are suspected of having MEC contamination that was or is under component control. • Exceptions: • Any location outside the United States • Sites where the presence of military munitions results from combat operations • Operating storage and manufacturing facilities • Operational (Active or Inactive) ranges Alaska Forum on the Environment

  7. Munitions Response Site Prioritization Protocol • Close to 3400 MRA/MRS • Over 2000 Installations • 28 million acres Statistics as of September 2004 (DENIX) Image: USAEC Alaska Forum on the Environment

  8. Munitions Response Site Prioritization Protocol • Proposed Rule released 2003 • Final Rule Promulgated in Federal Register on October 5, 2005 • Preamble (70 FR 58016) • MRSPP Final Rule (70 FR 58028) • Codified 32 CFR §179 Alaska Forum on the Environment

  9. Military Munition Terminology Alaska Forum on the Environment

  10. Munitions and Explosives of Concern (MEC) • Three Categories: • UXO • DMM • MC • Chemical Warfare Materiel Alaska Forum on the Environment

  11. MRA/MRS • Munitions Response Area (MRA) • Any area on a defense site that is known or suspected to contain UXO, DMM, or MC. Examples are former ranges and munitions burial areas. An MRA is comprised of one or more munitions response sites. (32 CFR §179.3) • Munitions Response Site (MRS) • A discrete location within an MRA that is known to require a munitions response. (32 CFR §179.3) Alaska Forum on the Environment

  27. MRSPP - Sequencing • The sequencing of a MRS for action will be based primarily on the MRS’s relative priority • DoD policy states that a MRS with higher relative risks will be addressed before an MRS with lower relative risks • Once an MRS's priority is determined, the Component may consider other factors in sequencing a site. These other ‘risk-plus’ factors • Do not change or influence the MRS Priority • May influence sequencing decisions Alaska Forum on the Environment

  29. MRSPP – The Fine Print • Priorities will be reviewed by an internal DOD QA panel to ensure consistency; priority rankings can be changed by panel • Priorities at all sites must be reviewed annually • Site must be re-scored if site conditions have changed or if new information becomes available • Data age for chemical, geophysical investigations Alaska Forum on the Environment

  30. MRSPP • Scoring tables in MRSPP Appendix A • HHE Scoresheets and Relative Risk Comparison Values located in MRSPP Primer (under production; based on EPA Region IX Preliminary Remediation Goals) Alaska Forum on the Environment

  31. Opportunities for Input Alaska Forum on the Environment

  32. MRSPP • The Protocol requires Components to offer stakeholders opportunities to comment and participate in the application of the Protocol and sequencing recommendations • How these opportunities are ‘offered’ varies from Component to Component Alaska Forum on the Environment

  33. Protocol Requirement for Stakeholder Involvement Each Component shall – See 32 CFR §176.5 for specific regulatory language • Notify leaders of stakeholder organizations of the opportunity to participate in the application of the Protocol and seek their involvement • Publish an announcement in local community publications about stakeholder participation in the initial application of the Protocol and request information pertinent to prioritization or sequencing • Include a copy of all public notices and announcements in the for the MRS Administrative Record, Information Repository, or project file Alaska Forum on the Environment

  34. Protocol Requirement for Stakeholder Involvement Each Component shall (cont’d) – • Incorporate stakeholders’ input in prioritization and sequencing decisions and document the decisions in the Management Action Plan (MAP) • Include information provided by stakeholders that influenced the priority or sequencing decision in the MRS Administrative Record, Information Repository, or project file • Provide stakeholders with information on prioritization or sequencing changes and request their comments Alaska Forum on the Environment

  35. Final Thoughts • Evolving process • Contractor implemented • A lot of people will be going into the field who are not from Alaska or understand how Alaska works – be gentle! • MRSPP is a good opportunity to get information on sites – be active! Alaska Forum on the Environment
