Abstract:

The Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program SERDP and Environmental Security Technology Certification Program ESTCP tasked Mitretek Systems to develop reference information on the characteristics of munitions response areas MRAs and munitions response sites MRSs. An MRA is an area, such as a former range or a munitions burial site, that may contain unexploded ordnance UXO, discarded military munitions, or munitions constituents with explosive properties collectively called munitions and explosives of concern MEC. An MRA may contain one or more MRSs. These areas typically occur on parcels of land that were once training ranges see Figure 1-1. An MRS is a discrete location within an MRA that is known to require a munitions response MR. The relationship between an MRA and an MRS on a range is shown in Figure 1-2. A more complete description of these areas and materials can be found in the list of definitions at the end of the report. The report provides background information on the characteristics of MRAs and MRSs, and provides examples of how these areas and sites were investigated and remediated. This information can be used by program managers to help them develop safe and cost-effective MEC characterization and remediation programs.
