~ Editor’s Note: The Bedford Citizen was asked to post this notice about last autumn’s Restoration Advisory Board meeting with no edits
The Navy has established an electronic copy of the Administrative Record (AR) File for the Naval Weapons Industrial Reserve Plant (NWIRP) in Bedford, Massachusetts. The AR File contains data and documentation supporting past site decisions regarding the Navy’s environmental restoration cleanup of NWIRP Bedford. Available in the AR File are the reports and documents of public interest, such as Remedial Investigations/Risk Assessments, Feasibility Studies, Proposed Plans, Records of Decision, and fact sheets. The electronic copy is available to the public 24/7 at this webpage: https://go.usa.gov/xpKeJ
For those with no internet and/or computer access, the Navy placed an AR File Binder at the Bedford Public Library (located at 7 Mudge Way, Bedford, Massachusetts, 01730). The AR File binder has hardcopies that describe the sites and their environmental history, a list of the documents that are in the AR File, and a CD with all finalized reports from the AR File. The AR File Binder is updated yearly so to get the most up-to-date information, the public should access the online webpage.
The Restoration Advisory Board meeting minutes from the Webex virtual meeting on October 27, 2021 were also posted to the NWIRP Bedford webpage under Community Outreach. The meeting minutes are also located in the AR File as described above.
