Camp Minden Fact Sheet March 2015

The March 2015 Camp Minden fact sheet will tell you about:

  • Future actions
  • Current actions
  • Past actions
  • Site background
  • Contacts

On March 18, 2015, the EPA took another important next step in fulfilling our promise to the community to increase public participation in reaching our decisions at Camp Minden, and to keep the safety of the public as our most important consideration. The EPA released the amended action memo which allows alternative technologies to be considered in disposing of the materials abandoned by Explo and left deteriorating at the site. The amendment clears the way for the Louisiana Military Department to review quotes for alternative methods and select a company to dispose of the M6 and CBI. A copy of the amended action memo is available online.
