BLM to explode old ordnance along SPRNCA Sierra Vista Herald (AZ) November 9, 2013TUCSON - In coordination with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Tucson Field Office, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will soon be removing unexploded ordnance (UXO) outside Fort Huachuca within the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area (SPRNCA).
The removal and mitigation will begin next week and is anticipated to proceed through April 2014. During that time two parcels within the SPRNCA will be closed, which cannot be identified due to the possible injury to curiosity-seekers.
The process began with a remedial investigation and feasibility study by the Corps. That study determined that response actions were needed at two formerly used defense sites (FUDS).
Cleanup will include location and removal of the UXO and explosive residue left from open detonation disposal operations of surplus or aged munitions after the World War II era. Every effort will be made to ensure public safety during the removal process including temporary closure to these areas.
