Subject: [CPEO-MEF] CLOSURE, RADIATION: Possible reuse delays at Brunswick Naval Air Station (ME)
Navy study keys reuse timeline
Radiation probe could delay MRRA access to airport building

BRUNSWICK - Research into possible low level radiation on Brunswick Naval Air Station properties could delay by a year or more the date that some buildings can be turned over for civilian reuse.

The Navy is conducting a Historic Radiological Assessment, in which it researches the background of base properties and, if necessary, searches for low level radioactive materials that might have been stored or disposed of around the base. The Navy's Radiological Affairs Support Office has yet to issue a draft assessment report, and has suggested the exact buildings that might require more attention remain uncertain until more research is done.

But base redevelopment officials said Thursday they've braced for the fact that Building 200 - the former base control tower building and a natural headquarters for a new civilian airport management firm to locate - might be one of the properties on the base to require extra radiation study.
