Optimization Review: Naval Base Kitsap OU-1, Keyport, Washington

Naval Base Kitsap Keyport occupies 340 acres (including tidelands) adjacent to the town of Keyport in Kitsap County, Washington, on a small peninsula in the central portion of Puget Sound. Environmental cleanup under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (or Superfund) has been divided into two Operable Units (OUs). This optimization review focuses on OU-1, the former base landfill, which comprises approximately 9 acres in the western part of the base next to a wetland area and the “tide flats” that flow into Dogfish Bay.
