In order to facilitate the ongoing environmental remediation and ESCA cleanup of the former Fort McClellan, controlled burning of the vegetation to be removed from the last approximately 7.5 acres of munitions and explosives of concern (MEC) contaminated property is planned. This burning will be conducted during the month of July at a single location in a device referred to as a “pit burner”. Burning will occur during the hours of 9 am to 3 pm daily, weather permitting, until all removed vegetation is burned. The general location for the burning operation will be between the Industrial Access Road and the Eastern Parkway. The burning will be performed under a permit issued by the Alabama Forestry Commission. It is possible that smoke may be visible from time to time.
