  DoD/State — Installation Restoration Program Back DoD Home Page    Back BCA Home Page   

The Installation Restoration Program (IRP) addresses cleaunup of DoD sites containing hazardous substances. The program is implemented in a manner consistent with the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) -- i.e. the 1986 Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA). The IRP program is comprised of a series of defined steps referred to as the "remedial action process". These steps include:

  1. Discovery and Notification
  2. Preliminary Assessment and Site Inspection - PA/SI
  3. Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study - RI/FS
  4. Proposed Plan - PP
  5. Record of Decision - ROD
  6. Remedial Design/Remedial Action - RD/RA
  7. Post-Project Activities

Removals may be implemented as part of the remedial process and the No Action option may also be exercised, should sufficient technical justification exist to support that decision.

The IRP program is carried out in cooperation with the NDEP and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Goals for cleanup are determined on a site-by-site basis. All applicable or relevant and appropriate requirements of Federal and State of Nevada laws are considered in setting these goals and selecting the best methods for cleanup.

The public is encouraged to participate in the IRP porcess,which is facilitated through the creation of Restoration Advisory Boards (RAB) for DoD sites. Attendance at RAB meetings provides the public with the opportunity to review and comment on environmental issues under consideration at each site. RAB meetings are held in the local community on a periodic basis and are advertised in the local media.
