Description
 
Cleaning up known hazards at the 4,700 formerly used defense sites (FUDS) -- sites transferred to other owners before 10/86 -- will require 50+ years and cost $18 billion. This estimate excludes any additional needed cleanup of emerging contaminants -- generally, those not yet governed by a health standard. FUDS cleanup is the responsibility of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps). In addition to FUDS, DoD is responsible for cleaning up 21,500 sites on active bases and 5,400 sites on realigned or closed bases. This report examined: (1) the extent to which the Corps reevaluates sites to identify emerging contaminants; (2) how DoD allocates cleanup funds; (3) how the Corps prioritizes FUDS for cleanup; and (4) FUDS program overhead costs.
