More FORA records, though hard to fathom By VIRGINIA HENNESSEY Monterey County Herald (CA) June 9, 2012In December 2011, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency sent a report to Stan Cook, project manager for the munitions cleanup of 3,400 acres of Fort Ord.
It begins like this:The Fort Ord Reuse Authority (FORA) Environmental Services Cooperative Agreement (ESCA) Residential Quality Assurance Process Pilot Study Technical Information Paper, California State University Monterey Bay (CSUMB) Off-Campus Munitions Response Area (MRA), Former Fort Ord, Monterey County, California, dated December 27, 2011 (hereinafter referred to as the RQAPPS TIP CSUMB OC MRA) ...
Yes, that's a 19-character acronym.The 2011 report goes on to say that the RQAPPS TIP CSUMB OC MRA is deficient in a few areas and needs more work.
Keep Fort Ord Wild had to sue FORA to get records like that in the hopes of understanding how the agency spent a $97.7 million federal grant for munitions cleanup on the former Army base. Winning release of the records might have been the easiest part of that proposition.
While they purportedly report that the remediation project is about 70 percent complete, the records are incomprehensible to the average person.
