SUFFOLK, Va. — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will host their quarterly public meeting regarding restoration efforts at the Former Nansemond Ordnance Depot Thursday.   

The Restoration Advisory Board meeting; which will take place at the Courtyard Marriott, located at 8060 Harbour View Blvd. in Suffolk at 6:15 p.m.; will feature discussions regarding the latest cleanup progress at the Superfund site.  

Topics planned for the March meeting include:


  • Interim Land Use Controls

  • Upcoming Field Work for the Shoreline MEC Investigation

  • Horseshoe Pond Remedial Design

  • Site Management Plan    





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. 

 The RAB members include stakeholders such as residents; local businesses; local, state, and federal regulators; property owners; Corps personnel and contractors; and other whom are interested in the clean-up.

 During the meetings, RAB members ask questions and provide input on all aspects of the restoration process to the interagency project team. All FNOD RAB quarterly meetings are open to the public.

 The Environmental Protection Agency placed FNOD on its National Priorities List in 1997. Two years later, the FNOD RAB was established.

 The RAB welcomes new members.
