The current Installation Restoration Program (IRP), Munitions Response Program (MRP), and Underground Storage Tank Program sites at Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Miramar are managed by 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 IR sites. At MCAS Miramar, the ERP is managed by the Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command Southwest in San Diego, California.
The Marine Corps, along with Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command Southwest, local and state regulators, monitors all IRP, MRP, and UST sites to ensure compliance to regulations and laws, and to address community concerns.
A link to an overview of past and current environmental investigations and cleanup activities completed at each of the IRP and MRP sites can be found by clicking the site name on the maps.
To date, 13 of the 20 IRP sites at MCAS Miramar have been closed or transferred out of the MCAS Miramar IRP following regulatory review and approval. The status of the seven remaining IRP sites is active, with each site in a different stage of the cleanup process. Underground Storage Tank Site 1, formerly an IRP site, is currently open.

Of the 15 munitions response sites (MRS) initially identified, three were removed from the MRP before the preliminary assessment phase. MRS 4 was transferred into the IRP as IRP Site 19. MRSs 11 and 14 were removed from the MRP due to operational status. Nine of the MRSs at MCAS Miramar have been closed following regulatory review and approval. The three remaining MRSs are under active investigation or cleanup.
