U.S. Navy holds open house for groundwater contamination questions By Mark D. Marotta 21st Century Media News Service/Montgomery News (PA) October 8, 2014Informational displays about groundwater contamination in the area of the former Naval Air Station-Joint Reserve Base Willow Grove adorned the main room of the Horsham Township Community Center at an open house meeting held by the U.S. Navy on Oct. 7.
Members of the public crowded around representatives from the Navy and other agencies, including the Environmental Protection Agency and Horsham Water and Sewer Authority, who were on hand to field questions about environmental issues at the former base, which was formally disestablished in 2011.
According to one of the exhibits at the open house, the facility had been identified as having groundwater contamination as early as 1995. In the years since the base’s closure, the Navy had continued to investigate and clean up the site. While work had been completed at several locations on the former base, the investigation of a number of other portions of the property, including an area used for fire training, have continued.
