Report Military Debris
The first reports of debris in South Patrick Shores was by workers in the 1950s who discovered vehicular batteries and barrels. Residents throughout the years believe that past dumping operations were carried out prior to homes being built. After WWII the use of toxic chemicals is suspected to contaminate water on bases and nearby communities with chemicals ranging from cleaning solvents, explosives and firefighting foam. It's no surprise that the military produces dangerous waste whether its ammunition components, unexploded ordinance or paints and thinners.
Our community grassroots effort spearheaded an investigation into what military waste might be buried in yards, under houses, and elsewhere in South Patrick Shores. Together we uncovered and documented military waste through metal detecting, digging, social media and mapping. We will continue mapping reported debris and submitting information to the federal agency who can investigate and possibly move ahead with a cleanup project under the Corps Formerly Used Defense Sites (FUDS) environmental cleanup program. If you are uncomfortable with the federal agency having your information you may email our team to schedule a confidential phone call
