Published Oct. 6, 2014

CONCORD, Mass. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District with assistance from the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers, Baltimore District Military Munitions Design Center, and their contractor Weston Solutions, Inc., will conduct a public meeting on Oct. 9 to present the selected remedy in the Proposed Plan for the Nantucket Beach Formerly Used Defense Site (FUDS).


The Nantucket Beach FUDS site was leased by the U.S. Government between September 1943 and June 1946 and was used as a practice aerial rocket range.  Over the past several years, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has completed an investigation of the potential explosives safety, health, and environmental issues resulting from past munitions use at the site.  The Proposed Plan describes the remedial alternatives considered for this site and identifies the preferred alternative.

The public will have a 30-day review/comment period in which to review the Proposed Plan and provide any comments to the government via the government’s contractor Weston Solutions.  Comments may be submitted via email to C.Kane@WestonSolutions.com or by mail to: Mr. Christopher Kane, Project Manager,

Weston Solutions, 45 Constitution Ave., Suite 101, Concord, New Hampshire 03310.
