Cleanup of contaminated sites at fort raises concerns Army defends plan, which locals say is 'backwards' BY DANIEL HOWLEY Atlanticville (NJ) August 6, 2009The remediation of contaminated sites at Fort Monmouth is under fire by local officials who fear they will be left to pick up the tab when the U.S. Army vacates the installation.
The Army has identified 43 Installation Restoration Program (IRP) sites, or sites that were or are in need of remediation due to contamination, at Fort Monmouth.
Of those 43 sites, 26 are now considered to require no further action; 17 of the sites are still active and require further remediation.
Contaminants at the sites vary by type of material and degree of contamination.
According to Edward Delugosz, chairman of the Eatontown Environmental Advisory Committee, the landfills contain a variety of building materials, including asbestos and other carcinogenic substances.
