CAMP NAVAJO - The public is invited to attend a meeting of the Camp Navajo Open Burn/Open Detonation (OB/OD) Area Stakeholder Advisory Group (SAG) from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on June 11 at the Camp Navajo Security Building. The Security Building is the first building on the right after exiting Interstate 40 at Exit 185 in Bellemont and turning south onto Hughes Avenue.
The SAG meeting will focus on recent progress and upcoming work in the ongoing environmental clean-up efforts at Camp Navajo. National Guard Bureau and Arizona Army National Guard representatives will present information on the program for investigating and cleaning up sites that were historically used for demilitarization of obsolete and unserviceable munitions. Representatives from the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will be available to answer questions. Additionally, Don Bills, a hydrologist with the US Geological Survey, will discuss ongoing groundwater studies in the Williams-Flagstaff area.
The SAG is comprised of representatives from various federal, state and local agencies and from the community. The SAG meets tri-annually to discuss the status of the cleanup activities, and all meetings are open to the public. Between meetings, they review and comment on work plans, procedures and reports.
