The 79,000-acre USA Aberdeen site, also known as the U.S. Army Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG), is an active military installation used since 1917 for planning and testing weapons, munitions, vehicles, and equipment in Harford County, Maryland, near the head of the Chesapeake Bay. APG is divided into two functional areas: the 13,000-acre Edgewood Area and the 17,000-acre Aberdeen Area, which includes two Earth fills. The 15-acre area, termed the White Phosphorus Underwater Munitions Burial Area (WPUMBA), is the focus of the ROD. EPA conducted extensive electromagnetic and core sampling studies of the WPUMBA from 1988 to 1989. The selected remedial action for the site is no action with surface water monitoring after severe storms with hurricane strength winds or any other act which may disturb sediment.
