BRUNSWICK — The U.S. Navy will hold a public meeting July 15 about potential remediation plans for an Explosive Ordnance Disposal Area at the former Naval Air Station.

The Navy found that the releases of chemicals and munitions items at Site 12 “do not present unacceptable risks to human health or the environment,” according to a press release. As a result, “no further action” is needed to address contamination at the Superfund site.

The Navy’s preferred method for addressing any existing potential hazards is to implement land-use controls.

Comments on the plan may be submitted to Paul Burgio at or 215-897-4903, from July 10 to Aug. 7.

The public meeting will be held at the Best Western hotel in Brunswick, starting with an information session at 5 p.m. and public comment at 7 p.m.
