Fort Detrick, Md., proposes 8-year plan for cleaning up contaminated ground water

HAGERSTOWN, Md. — The Army is proposing an 8-year plan for cleaning up groundwater contamination at Fort Detrick in Frederick.

A draft plan submitted to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on Sept. 1 lays out steps for investigating and, if necessary, remediating pollution that is believed to be coming from decades-old waste disposal pits at the Army installation in western Maryland.

The document proposes having a remedy in place by February 2019 and a completed response by February 2020. Both EPA and Fort Detrick officials stressed on Thursday that the draft document is subject to change.

They said the investigation into the nature and extent of the contamination would determine what, if any, remedy is needed. The investigation would be completed by September 2015 under the timeline.
