SAVANNAH, Ga. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is conducting the first Five-Year Review for the Donaldson Air Force Base (DAFB) Formerly Used Defense Site (FUDS), located in Greenville, South Carolina.

The DAFB FUDS was used by the Department of Defense from 1942 to 1963 for training B-25 crews. A remedial action was completed for Areas of Concern (AOC) 1 and 2 (several landfills) and AOC 5 (aircraft wash area) at the DAFB FUDS in 2019.

The review, which is required by the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA), will include a site visit, a review of data from the past five years, and an evaluation to determine if the remedy is protective of human health and the environment.
