Supplemental Site Inspection Activities

  2. Initial Excavation: Armored heavy equipment will remove surface debris that may interfere with subsequent steps of the field effort, and transport it to the Laydown Area north of North Loop road.
  3. Digital Geophysical Mapping: The geophysical mapping effort will identify subsurface anomalies that may require intrusive investigation (digging) to determine whether they are unexploded ordnance/munitions of explosive concern items.
  4. Intrusive Investigation: Excavation to identify and address potential subsurface unexploded ordnance/munitions of explosive concern hazards.
  5. Sifting and Sorting: Soil and debris will be processed in the Laydown Area.
