Subject: [CPEO-MEF] REUSE: Ft. Monmouth (NJ) Finding of No Significant Impact
Army's findings on fort contamination criticized
Army: Environmental studies being prepared

Atlanticville (NJ)
November 19, 2009

The Eatontown Environmental Commission is calling on the Department of the Army to conduct an in-depth study of environmental contamination at Fort Monmouth before turning property over to the fort's three host towns.

"I feel that we need more information to make a better decision on what's going on [at Fort Monmouth]," Environmental Commission Chairman Edward Dlugosz said at the Nov. 4 council workshop meeting.

Dlugosz, a member of the fort's Restoration Advisory Board (RAB), made the request after the Army released a draft of a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) report.

"I don't feel that the town can afford to go forward without understanding all of the [environmental] impacts, all of the remedies and the time frames and the cost that will be involved," he said.

Dlugosz said the Army should produce a more thorough Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) instead.
