Buxton FUDS pipe removal work completed, results pending
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Savannah District, awarded a contract to remove a pipe thought to be the potential source that could have resulted in the odors, sheen, and contaminated organic material reported to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers by the National Park Service. The contract included removing and sampling the soil that surrounded the pipe as well at the former Buxton Naval Facility, a Formerly Used Defense Site property located in Dare County, North Carolina. The FUDS property encompasses 3/10 of a mile of the more than 75 miles of beach along the Cape Hatteras National Seashore.
