Quarterly FNOD RAB meeting scheduled for March 7

Published March 5, 2024

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 and virtual quarterly Restoration Advisory Board (RAB) meeting scheduled for 6:15 to 8 p.m. March 7. 

The meeting is open to the public.

The in-person meeting will meet in room W105 of the Manning Building, 7000 College Drive Suffolk, VA. 

People who would like to attend the meeting virtually should contact Mr. Sher Zaman by phone at (410) 320-9516 or by email at Sher.Zaman@usace.army.mil for meeting access information.

Topics planned for the March meeting include:
• CERCLA Refresher
• Renovation Plant Phase 2 Investigation

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.
