Feds seek access to development site near Detrick
Request for well drilling, groundwater testing has been ignored

The federal government wants access to a residential development site near Fort Detrick's Area B to drill wells and complete groundwater testing.
In a letter obtained by The Frederick News-Post on Tuesday, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said that Rocky Gorge Development LLC has repeatedly ignored requests from the Army to gain access to monitor the 90-acre Shookstown Road property.

The development company was given one week to respond to the EPA directive. A company leader confirmed receiving the letter Monday.

"EPA believes the proposed work is necessary and appropriate to better understand the nature and extent of contamination migrating from the Fort Detrick Area B Superfund site, and to ensure the protection of human health and the environment," wrote Paul Leonard, associate director in the EPA Office of Federal Facility Remediation and Site Assessment, in the Feb. 8 letter.
