PUBLIC NOTICE JOINT BASE MCGUIRE-DIX-LAKEHURST (JB MDL) NOTICE OF AVAILABILITY OF ENGINEERING EVALUATION/COSTANALYSIS (EE/CA) FOR NON-TIME CRITICAL REMOVAL ACTION (NTCRA), PHASE II WATER LINE CONSTRUCTION, FOR PUBLIC COMMENT The Department of the Air Force and JB MDL announce the availability of the EE/CA for NTCRA, Phase II Water Line for public comment. The Air Force sampled private offbase drinking water wells located adjacent to JB MDL and confirmed the presence of perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) above the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) Lifetime Health Advisory (HA) level of 0.07 g/L (individually or combined) at five properties. The owners of the properties were immediately notified and were provided bottled drinking water as a temporary short-term solution. The EE/CA removal action objective (RAO) is to “eliminate the human health risk posed by PFOS/PFOA-impacted drinking water above the EPA Lifetime HA level.” The EE/CA recommends connecting all impacted properties to a municipal water line as the permanent long-term solution to eliminate future exposure to PFOS/PFOA-impacted drinking water above the EPA Lifetime HA level. Water would be supplied by the Municipal Water Authority (MUA) of Manchester Township or the Borough of Lakehurst based on the location of the impacted property. The MUAs operate, maintain, and distribute water obtained from deep confined aquifers free of PFOS/PFOA surface contamination. The Air Force encourages the public to review and provide written comments on the EE/CA for NTCRA during a 30-day comment period, from 20 September 2021 through 19 October 2021. Comments must be submitted in writing to the contact listed herein and must be postmarked or emailed no later than 19 October April 2021. Please send your comments to Mr. James Richman, Remediation Program Manager, 787 CES/CEIE, 2403 Vandenberg Avenue, JB MDL, New Jersey 08641 or by email to email@example.com. The EE/CA is available for review on the Air Force’s Administrative Record website, http://ar.afcec-cloud.af.mil/, by selecting JBMDL-Lakehurst in the drop down list and entering AR#W004275, or on the JB MDL Restoration Advisory Board website, https://envirorestorejbmdl.com/ under the “COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT” tab.
