Public notice for the proposed plan for the Air Show Drop Zone at the former Lockbourne Air Force Base.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Louisville District held a public meeting to accept comments on the Proposed Plan for a No Action preferred alternative at the Air Show Drop Zone on the former Lockbourne Air Force Base in Ohio Dec. 12, 2023. 


The former Lockbourne Air Force Base is a formerly used defense site located in Columbus, Franklin and Pickaway Counties, Ohio where the district is currently conducting environmental investigations as part of the Formerly Used Defense Sites (FUDS) program. 


Based on the findings of the Remedial Investigation and previous studies, USACE has determined the No Action preferred alternative is appropriate, as there is no unacceptable risk to human, health, safety and the environment from exposure to Military Munitions or Munitions Constituents (the metals and explosive chemicals that comprise munitions) associated with the activities of the former Air Show Drop Zone.


The public meeting gave stakeholders and members of the public an opportunity to comment on the proposed plan. Comments, which will be considered in the final decision-making process for the site, will be accepted until Jan. 8, 2024.
