The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Legacy Management (LM) has received the Site Closeout Report for the Colonie, New York, Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program (FUSRAP) Site from the New York District Office of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). The report includes a Declaration of Response Action Completion signed by the commander of the USACE North Atlantic Division. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation concurred on the closeout report and the completeness of the cleanup. Receipt of the report begins the two-year transition of the site to DOE, with site transfer scheduled for June 2020. The Colonie site is an 11.2-acre, DOE-owned, vacant property located near Albany, New York. LM activities at the site will include routine inspections, monitoring, and maintenance. LM intends to engage with the Town of Colonie and other local stakeholders to discuss reuse opportunities for the site that will positively impact the local economy while also ensuring people and the environment remain protected.
