SUFFOLK, Va. —  Community members can learn more about restoration efforts at the Former Nansemond Ordnance Depot (FNOD) and hear the latest cleanup progress during an in-person quarterly Restoration Advisory Board (RAB) meeting scheduled for 6:15 to 8 p.m. March 2. at the HRSD SWIFT Research Facility, 6909 Armstead Road, Suffolk, Va.

The meeting is open to the public. 

Topics planned for the March meeting include an HRSD/TCC update. 

Board members and stakeholders include residents, area businesses; local, state and federal regulators; property owners, USACE personnel and contractors, and other interested parties.

The quarterly RAB meetings serve as a public forum for the USACE’s cleanup progress at the 975-acre defense depot, located near the former Tidewater Community College Portsmouth campus. During the meetings, RAB members ask questions and provide input on all aspects of the restoration process to the interagency project team. The USEPA placed FNOD on its National Priorities List (NPL) in 1997. Two years later, the FNOD RAB was established.
