Martha's Vineyard Remedial Investigation Feasibility Study

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District will be conducting a Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study (RI/FS) at three munitions response sites (MRSs) used to train naval aviators during and immediately following World War II. The sites are located or within the towns of Edgartown, Chilmark and West Tisbury, Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts.  The three MRSs include the former Cape Poge Little Neck Bomb Target Site, the Former Moving Target Machine Gun Range and Bomb Target Site at South Beach, and the former Tisbury Great Pond Bomb Site and Gunnery Range.

The purpose of the project is to determine the nature and extent of munitions and explosives of concern (MEC) and munitions debris at the MRSs. The objective of the RI/FS process is not the unobtainable goal of removing all uncertainty, but rather to gather information sufficient to support an informed risk management decision regarding which remedy appears the most appropriate for a given MRS. All work will be conducted in accordance with the Comprehensive Environment Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) 1980, as amended by the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA) of 1986, and the National Contingency Plan (NCP).
