The current Installation Restoration Program (IRP) sites at Marine Corps Logistics Base (MCLB) Barstow are managed under the Navy’s Environmental Restoration Program (ERP). The overarching goal of the Navy’s ERP is to protect human health and the environment from past hazardous waste practices and releases at Navy and Marine Corps IRP sites. The interactive map below shows which sites are being addressed under the Navy’s ERP. At MCLB Barstow, the ERP is managed by the Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command Southwest in San Diego, California.
To organize the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) site characterization and cleanup process, MCLB Barstow was divided into seven operable units (OUs). Each OU is subdivided into IR sites identified at MCLB Barstow as CERCLA Areas of Concern (CAOCs). There are currently 54 identified CAOCs at MCLB Barstow, 33 of which are under investigation or in the process of remedial action, and 21 of which received a no further action (NFA) determination and are closed.
A link to an overview of past and current environmental investigations and cleanup activities completed at each of the CAOCs can be found by clicking the site name on the map.
