Corps of Engineers finalizes Decision Document for Camp Wallace

Published Feb. 7, 2014
Expiration date: 4/30/2014

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Baltimore District has completed the remedial investigation at the former Camp Wallace, a formerly used defense site located on the north shore of the James River, five miles south of Williamsburg, Va.   The final decision for the property is No Further Action.

Camp Wallace was not a target area for large munitions training. Only practice and training munitions were used during maneuver activities on site. Small quantities of discarded military munitions (blank small arms only) and munitions debris (practice and training pieces) were found on the former site. None of the items were determined to pose an explosive hazard.  Additionally, analysis of the munitions constituents showed no risk to human health or the environment.

In July 2013, the Corps of Engineers held a public meeting to discuss the Proposed Plan for the site.  The plan was made available for a 30-day public comment period. 

Copies of the final Decision Document for Camp Wallace are available for viewing at the Williamsburg Library, 515 Scotland St., Williamsburg, VA.
