No wetlands are present on the KCP. There are no residences and no agricultural activities or farmlands on the KCP. The adjoining properties are mostly residential with isolated commercial tracts, except along the eastern and northern sides, which have been designated for public and recreational uses.
The KCP has been extensively characterized for the presence of legacy contamination that might impact soils and groundwater at the site. Active remediation has taken place at previously identified solid waste management units, and NNSA continues to implement environmental remedies. On August 24, 2012, NNSA received final permit modifications for the existing Missouri Hazardous Waste Management Facility Part I Permit and the existing Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments of 1984 Part II Permit from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Those permit modifications require NNSA and GSA to conduct further environmental investigation, monitoring, and risk assessment, and will allow better coordination of environmental investigations.
Beginning in 2013, NNSA will relocate its operations from the KCP to a newly constructed industrial campus 8 miles south of the BFC. NNSA's relocation of operations to the new facility was analyzed in an EA that GSA completed in 2008 and DOE adopted (DOE/EA-1592). When the move is completed, the KCP property at the BFC will be excess to the needs of NNSA's mission and will be available for transfer.
GSA is continuing to evaluate its options to potentially relocate its operations to a new location away from the BFC. If GSA decides to relocate its operations, its real property at the BFC also could be available for transfer.
