USA fielded 23 UXO technicians to conduct an expanded intrusive MEC investigation at Camp Devil Dog, Camp Lejeune, NC. Of the 46,951 anomalies we investigated over the course of this project, 385 MEC items were discovered and subsequently destroyed on site. Anomalies were identified through a previously-conducted geophysical investigation then surveyed and marked with flags. USA’s Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) teams completed intrusive investigations, managed Munitions Potentially Presenting an Explosive Hazard (MPPEH), MEC demolition operations, Material Documented as Safe (MDAS) disposal operations, and provided construction support. Intrusive results were recorded on personal digital assistants (PDAs) using Munitions Response Site Information Management System (MRSIMS).
All project operations were successfully coordinated with the ongoing Marine Corps training programs and the various Marine Corps' Military Construction (MILCON) program contractors working at Camp Devil Dog.
