The Louisiana National Guard (LMD), submitted a contractor proposal to EPA for the cleanup of M6 propellant at Camp Minden. The recommendation of an alternative remedy comes after weeks of cooperation between local and federal stakeholders. EPA is currently conducting a technical review of the contractor proposal. Upon completion of the review process, EPA will respond appropriately and publicly.

Once the response method is determined and notifications are made, the contractor will provide LMD and EPA plans for work, health and safety, and emergency response. The work plan will include specifics of the removal action, environmental monitoring and sampling, etc. The health and safety plan will address worker health and safety during the removal action. The emergency response plan will include what will happen in the event there's an incident.

EPA is planning continued outreach efforts through additional workshops and Community Meetings. A Community Meeting is planned for mid-May. This meeting will discuss details of the alternative remedy. Once a date is set, a newsletter will be mailed to the community and a notice published in the Minden Newspaper.
