Nantucket Beach (Tom Nevers) Remedial Investigation Feasibility Study

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), will begin Remedial Investigation (RI) field work in March 2012 at the area known as the Nantucket Beach Formerly Used Defense Site (FUDS).

The FUDS project area, known as "Nantucket Beach," covers approximately 2.2 miles of beach, between the Former Tom Nevers Naval Facility and the Nantucket Airport. During WWII, the U.S. Navy conducted air-to-ground military training exercises at the former "Nantucket Beach" range.

The RI field work will be conducted from approximately March to June 2012. The objective of the RI is to search for and locate military munitions that may be present as a result of Navy training conducted during WWII. After the RI is completed, various remedial alternatives will be evaluated in the Feasibility Study (FS) to address the munitions.

As the work progresses, the Corps contractor, Weston Solutions, Inc., will be contacting property owners via phone, and/or posting door hangars on each residents’/agencies’ doors notifying each land owner when the contractor will be performing work on their specific property.

As part of this effort, the Corps requires access to private property and is in the process of obtaining rights of entry from affected land owners. The Corps will only enter onto and perform work on properties where the owner has signed a right of entry giving their permission for the Corps to proceed with work on their property.
