Environmental cleanup underway at BNAS Amber Cronin The Forecaster (ME) August 10, 2012BRUNSWICK - After nearly 70 years as a military base, there are several significant environmental concerns being cleaned up at the former Brunswick Naval Air Station (now known as Brunswick Landing).
"It's been a military institution for almost 70 years and part of that type of operation is there's always some sort of environmental contaminants (involved)," said Steve Levesque, Mid-Coast Regional Redevelopment Authority (MRRA). "It's common in all military institutions and big industrial sites. Disposal methods in the 1940s, 50s and 60s were a lot different than after that."
According to Paul Burgio, Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) environmental coordinator, the U.S. Navy is actively addressing all of the environmental problems on the base in order to convey the land to MRRA.
