Question

What is the status of the Department of the Navy’s clean-up program on active and BRAC installations?

Answer

The Department is investigating and cleaning up sites contaminated with industrial chemicals under the installation restoration program (IRP) and sites with munitions under the munitions response program (MRP). We currently have over 4,200 environmental sites on active installations and over 1100 sites on BRAC installations. The Department has made substantial progress investigating and cleaning up these sites and has remedies in place or completed response actions at 67% of sites of active installations and at 75% of sites on BRAC installations, as of the end of fiscal year 2011. The Department is on track to meet the Department of the Defense metric of reaching response complete on 95% of all the sites by 2021.
