Two months before a private company breaks ground on a $3 billion 
housing development at Fort Meade, environmental regulators are 
questioning how the land was transferred by the Army and the safety of 
building on a base with confirmed environmental hazards. 
Army officials insist that they followed all environmental and public 
disclosure rules in transferring the 3,000 housing units to Picerne Real 
Estate Group of Rhode Island under a 50-year lease for the 1,000-acre

from the Environmental Protection Agency, the Maryland Department of the 
Environment, the Anne Arundel County Health Department and area 
residents note what they say are several flaws in the Army's 
environmental studies.
