Fifth Five Year Review – Former NAS Cecil Field, Jacksonville, Florid

21 May 2021
NAS Cecil Field - The Department of the Navy, in cooperation with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP), has begun the fifth five-year review of the remedies implemented at the former Naval Air Station (NAS) Cecil Field, Jacksonville, Florida.

The purpose of a five-year review is to ensure that the selected remedies are effectively protective of human health and the environment. The five-year review process is mandated under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) (also known as Superfund) for sites where the selected remedial action results in contaminants remaining above levels that allow for unlimited use and unrestricted exposure. The Navy’s Policy for Conducting Five-Year Reviews under the CERCLA Program and EPA’s Comprehensive Five-Year Review Guidance is being used in the preparation of this review. This fifth five-year review will be submitted by September 30, 2021. This five-year review for NAS Cecil Field will focus on the sites for which remedial actions have been implemented. The Navy is conducting interviews, reviewing reports, and assessing the site conditions to evaluate if the remedies remain protective of human health and the environment. Public participation is encouraged and welcomed. If you are interested in participating in the interview process, please contact the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Environmental Coordinator for more information.
