We request your review and written comment of the Draft EA for the Steam Sterilization Plant Replacement at Fort Detrick within 30 days of receipt of this correspondence. If you cannot access the document online or if you have any questions, please send a request for information to Detrick_SSP_EA@usace.army.mil.
Interested parties are also invited to submit comments via mail to Department of the Army, U.S. Army Installation PAO, 810 Schreider St, Suite 100, Fort Detrick, Maryland 21702.

The Proposed Action involves the construction of the SSP on the ground floor of the new USAMRIID facility. This action would contain effluent processing to the same building in which it is generated, potentially minimizing environmental risks. The new SSP would use newer, more efficient technology. The EA also considers a No Action Alternative, which would involve no new construction.
