     LITTLE ROCK, Ark.  – The Army Corps of Engineers will be holding two meetings about past and future remediation plans for an area which was formerly part of Camp Robinson.

     The first Camp Robinson Formerly Used Defense Site Community Awareness Day meeting is scheduled from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 24 at the William F. Laman Public Library, 2801 Orange Street, North Little Rock, Arkansas. The community awareness meeting will provide information about the five remediated areas, history of the area and inform individuals on what to do in the unlikely event that munitions are encountered.

     Then at 6:30 p.m. until 8 p.m. information will be provided on the proposed remedial action plan for the three remaining munitions response sites on land that was formerly part of Camp Robinson north of Highway 89 from Clinton Road to east of Matt Abbott Road, near Mayflower, Arkansas. The original proposed plan for the clean-up of munitions was presented August 2012.  The area was divided into eight sections called munitions response sites and five of the eight sites have been completed. 

     Concerned residents and citizens should attend this important meeting to learn about the proposed remediation of the three areas and provide feedback on the proposed remediation plan.  You can also provide comments through Sept. 29 to Max Frauenthal, 700 West Capitol, Room 7500, Little Rock, AR  72201 or by email to max.d.frauenthal@usace.army.mil.

     This is also an opportunity for community members who are interested in the restoration program to become a member of the restoration advisory board to act as liaisons between the community and the Corps of Engineers.
