Site DescriptionThe U.S.A. Support Oakdale Facility, located in Allegheny and Westmoreland Counties, Pennsylvania, is owned by the U.S. Army, and was selected for closure under the BRAC 95 Commission. The installation encompasses six non-contiguous areas encompassing 188 acres. The BRAC property includes the GATR/SAGE control site (approximately 6 acres) and the Irwin Annex Launch Site (approximately 18 acres). They were acquired by the U.S. government in 1957 for constructing and operating a control, main post, and support garrison to support the Nike missile launch defense system. Hazardous materials management at the GATR/SAGE facility included the use of generic solvents, paints, adhesives and fuels for light vehicle maintenance. Operations at the Irwin launch facility would have involved chemicals and fuels used for missile operations including solvents, paints, cleaners, and fuel for emergency generators. Two underground storage tanks have been identified and are reported to have contained fuel oil.
Site ResponsibilityThis site is being addressed though the Department of Defense's BRAC Environmental Restoration Program.
