The site contained 15 buildings, five steel towers and a radome. There were underground power cables leading from the buildings into the field and a copper grid network throughout the area for the grounding of antennae. There were also a number of miscellaneous wood poles and a former lagoon area located on the property. All of the buildings, the steel towers, and all other improvements were constructed by a prior lessee, Bell Laboratories. (Source: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers) « see less

Update (Dec. 5, 2017): We have changed the source of the installation cost data after being notified by the Department of Defense that they erroneously reported their own cost figures on the DERP website. We are now displaying the costs the department says are the most accurate available, from the Pentagon’s DERP database that we received in a FOIA request.

Note: The risk level of a site refers to a relative risk assessment made by the DOD to prioritize the cleanup of sites.

Data: All data comes from the Defense Environmental Restoration Program and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and will be released soon at the ProPublica Data Store. Read our methodology »
