Abstract : Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) is providing support to the U.S. Army Environmental Center (USAEC) in evaluating the nature and extent and significance of unexploded ordnance (UXO) (i.e., live ordnance) contamination at Fort George G. Meade (FGGM) in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. FGGM formerly encompassed 13,536 acres and has been an operating U.S. Army installation since 1917. In 1988, 9,000 acres of the facility were designated as the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) parcel. The BRAC parcel historically has been used as an ordnance range and training area. The parcel also includes one active sanitary landfill, four inactive landfills, an ordnance demolition area, ammunition supply points, and the Tipton Army Airfield. On October 16, 1991, the U.S. Army transferred 7,600 acres of the. BRAC parcel to the U.S Department of the Interior (DOI). On September 28, 1992, an additional 500 acres of the BRAC parcel were transferred to DOI. Since that time, the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center (PWRC) has managed the property.
