5 Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation 8 February 2006Alaska Forum on the Environment The National Defense Authorization Act of Fiscal Year 2002 Requires DOD to: – Create an inventory of MMR sites in the US and Territories [10 USC §2710(a)] – Create a protocol with which to prioritize sites within each facility/state/region and across the United States [10 USC §2710(b)]

6 Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation 8 February 2006Alaska Forum on the Environment Site Eligibility 10 USC §2710(a) list: sites that have demonstrated UXO, DMM, or MC contamination or are suspected of having MEC contamination that was or is under component control. Exceptions: – Any location outside the United States – Sites where the presence of military munitions results from combat operations – Operating storage and manufacturing facilities – Operational (Active or Inactive) ranges

9 Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation 8 February 2006Alaska Forum on the Environment Munitions Response Site Prioritization Protocol Proposed Rule released 2003 Final Rule Promulgated in Federal Register on October 5, 2005 – Preamble (70 FR 58016) – MRSPP Final Rule (70 FR 58028) Codified 32 CFR §179

10 Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation 8 February 2006Alaska Forum on the Environment Military Munition Terminology

11 Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation 8 February 2006Alaska Forum on the Environment Munitions and Explosives of Concern (MEC) Three Categories: – UXO – DMM – MC Chemical Warfare Materiel

12 Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation 8 February 2006Alaska Forum on the Environment MRA/MRS Munitions Response Area (MRA) – Any area on a defense site that is known or suspected to contain UXO, DMM, or MC. Examples are former ranges and munitions burial areas. An MRA is comprised of one or more munitions response sites. (32 CFR §179.3) Munitions Response Site (MRS) – A discrete location within an MRA that is known to require a munitions response. (32 CFR §179.3)

13 Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation 8 February 2006Alaska Forum on the Environment Camp Marmot MRA 2 Range B MRS B1: Rifle Range Target Area MRS C1: Hand Grenade Range MRA 3 Range C MRS A3: Range Remainder Active Range Range D MRA 1 Range A MRS A1: Target Area MRS A2: Firing Point

17 30 Tables EHE: 10 CHE: 10 HHE: 8 (max) Priority Ranking Table A

18 Circle all munitions types present at the MRS Record only the largest single classification score in the Munitions Type box DO NOT ADD MULTIPLE SCORES TOGETHER! Document any MRS- specific data used in selecting the Munitions Type classifications here

20 1a. Enter the Explosive Hazard data element scores 1b. Add to determine factor values 3a. Enter the Receptors Factor data element scores 3b. Add to determine factor value 4. Add the three factor values 2a. Enter the Accessibility Factor data element scores 2b. Add to determine factor values 5. Select the Module Rating that corresponds with the module value 6. Record the Module Rating in the EHE Module Rating box B

21 Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation 8 February 2006Alaska Forum on the Environment MRSPP – Alternative Ratings Evaluation Pending No Longer Required No Known or Suspected Explosive Hazard (CWM Hazard, MC Hazard)

22 Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation 8 February 2006Alaska Forum on the Environment Munitions Response Site Prioritization Protocol Training Manual, December 2005 CWM, explosive configuration, either UXO or damaged DMM

25 9. Circle the value for the Receptors Factor 1. List the names and maximum concentrations of all MC and associated contaminants 7. Circle the value for the Migration Pathway Factor 8. Record the value 6. Record the value 3. Calculate the ratio for each contaminant 2. List the associated comparison values from Appendix B of Primer 10. Record the value 5. Circle the CHF Value that corresponds to the sum of ratios 4. Calculate the sum of the ratios H Lead 22.0 µg/L RDX 38.0 µg/L 4.00 µg/L 61.0µg/L M H

28 Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation 8 February 2006Alaska Forum on the Environment MRSPP - Sequencing The sequencing of a MRS for action will be based primarily on the MRSs relative priority DoD policy states that a MRS with higher relative risks will be addressed before an MRS with lower relative risks Once an MRS's priority is determined, the Component may consider other factors in sequencing a site. These other risk-plus factors – Do not change or influence the MRS Priority – May influence sequencing decisions

29 Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation 8 February 2006Alaska Forum on the Environment Sequencing Factors Munitions Response Site Prioritization Protocol Training Manual, December 2005

30 Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation 8 February 2006Alaska Forum on the Environment MRSPP – The Fine Print Priorities will be reviewed by an internal DOD QA panel to ensure consistency; priority rankings can be changed by panel Priorities at all sites must be reviewed annually – Site must be re-scored if site conditions have changed or if new information becomes available Data age for chemical, geophysical investigations

31 Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation 8 February 2006Alaska Forum on the Environment MRSPP Scoring tables in MRSPP Appendix A HHE Scoresheets and Relative Risk Comparison Values located in MRSPP Primer (under production; based on EPA Region IX Preliminary Remediation Goals)

32 Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation 8 February 2006Alaska Forum on the Environment Opportunities for Input

33 Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation 8 February 2006Alaska Forum on the Environment MRSPP The Protocol requires Components to offer stakeholders opportunities to comment and participate in the application of the Protocol and sequencing recommendations How these opportunities are offered varies from Component to Component

34 Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation 8 February 2006Alaska Forum on the Environment Protocol Requirement for Stakeholder Involvement Notify leaders of stakeholder organizations of the opportunity to participate in the application of the Protocol and seek their involvement Publish an announcement in local community publications about stakeholder participation in the initial application of the Protocol and request information pertinent to prioritization or sequencing Include a copy of all public notices and announcements in the for the MRS Administrative Record, Information Repository, or project file Each Component shall – See 32 CFR §176.5 for specific regulatory language

35 Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation 8 February 2006Alaska Forum on the Environment Protocol Requirement for Stakeholder Involvement Incorporate stakeholders input in prioritization and sequencing decisions and document the decisions in the Management Action Plan (MAP) Include information provided by stakeholders that influenced the priority or sequencing decision in the MRS Administrative Record, Information Repository, or project file Provide stakeholders with information on prioritization or sequencing changes and request their comments Each Component shall (contd) –

36 Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation 8 February 2006Alaska Forum on the Environment Final Thoughts Evolving process Contractor implemented – A lot of people will be going into the field who are not from Alaska or understand how Alaska works – be gentle! MRSPP is a good opportunity to get information on sites – be active!
