As part of the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Military Munitions Response Program (MMRP), the United States Army National Guard (ARNG) invites the public to review and comment on the Proposed Plan for the Kingman Range Munitions Response Site (MRS) located approximately 150 miles west of Flagstaff in Kingman, Arizona. The ARNG in coordination with the Arizona Army National Guard (AZARNG) is responsible for environmental investigations and cleanup activities of this site under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act. ADEQ is a supporting agency in the decision-making process.
Implementation of land use controls (LUCs) is the preferred alternative presented in the Proposed Plan for the Kingman Range MRS (AZHQ-006-R-01). This plan was developed based on site investigations that indicated the potential for munitions and explosives of concern (MEC) associated with historical military training activities to be present at the Kingman Range MRS is negligible. However, MEC do present a potential explosive hazard and therefore, its potential presence may pose a threat to human health. No munitions constituents (MC) were found at levels that pose a threat to human health or the environment on the Kingman Range MRS. Therefore, this alternative was selected because it is protective of human health and the environment, meets the remedial action objective, and sufficiently addresses the minimal potential explosive hazard through the implementation of LUCs at the Kingman Range MRS.
No further action (NFA) is recommended in the Proposed Plan for the Kingman Range – NFA Area MRS (AZHQ006-R-02). Site investigations at this site indicated no MEC or MC was present. Additionally, a survey of residents within the Kingman Range – NFA Area MRS was conducted and only a single 50-caliber bullet was identified and found to be related to past AZARNG use of the property. ADEQ concurs with the Proposed Plan recommendation of NFA for the Kingman Range – NFA Area MRS.
