NOTICE OF AVAILABILITY OF DECEMBER 2022 RESTORATION ADVISORY BOARD MEETING MINUTES FOR NAVAL WEAPONS INDUSTRIAL RESERVE PLANT BEDFORD
The Naval Weapons Industrial Reserve Plant (NWIRP) Bedford Restoration Advisory Board (RAB) meeting minutes from the hybrid meeting (in-person and virtual) on December 8, 2022 have been posted to the NWIRP Bedford webpage under Community Outreach (https://www.navfac.navy.mil/Business-Lines/Environmental/Products-and-Services/Environmental-Restoration/Mid-Atlantic/Bedford-NWIRP/Community-Outreach/). These meeting minutes will be located in the Administrative Record (AR) file too.
The Navy has established a web-based electronic copy of the AR file for NWIRP Bedford in Bedford, Massachusetts. The AR file contains data and documentation supporting past site decisions regarding the Navy's environmental restoration cleanup of NWIRP Bedford. Available in the AR file are the reports and documents of public interest, such as Remedial Investigations/Risk Assessments, Feasibility Studies, Proposed Plans, Records of Decision, past RAB meeting minutes, and fact sheets. The electronic copy is available to the public 24/7 at this webpage: https://administrative-records.navfac.navy.mil/?ML6J_U3JG4XM3TL.
For those with no internet and/or computer access, the Navy placed an AR file binder at the Bedford Public Library (located at 7 Mudge Way, Bedford, Massachusetts, 01730). The AR file binder has hardcopies that describe the sites and their environmental history, a list of the documents that are in the AR file, and a CD with the finalized reports from the AR file. The AR file binder is updated yearly so to get the most up-to-date information, the public should access the online webpage.
