Public meeting held for Lordstown education laboratory site

Published Aug. 31, 2015
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Louisville District held a public meeting to accept comments on the Proposed Plan for a No Action decision at the Trumbull Area Multi-Purpose Environmental Education Laboratory (TAMPEEL) site within the former Lordstown Ordnance Depot (FLOD) in Lordstown, Ohio, Aug. 18.

The meeting gave stakeholders and members of the public an opportunity to comment on the Corps’ proposed plan of No Action at the site. Comments, which will be considered in the final decision-making process for the TAMPEEL site are being accepted until Sept. 4.
The Department of Defense owned the 564-acre FLOD from 1942 to 1967 to transport, store, repair and maintain military equipment and supplies. In 1967, DoD transferred 39 acres on the northwestern corner of the FLOD to the Lordstown Board of Education to be used for the TAMPEEL site.

In 2011, USACE completed a remedial investigation (RI), which included review of the site history, environmental sampling, and a human health and ecological risk assessment. A suspected disposal area was also investigated as part of the RI. Based on the analytical results of soils, sediments, surface water and groundwater reported in the RI for TAMPEEL, there was no evidence of hazardous materials disposal. The RI also concluded that no remedial action is necessary to protect human health and the environment at TAMPEEL for educational or recreational use. Therefore, USACE recommends no further remedial action at the TAMPEEL site.
