Formerly Used Defense Sites (DERP-FUDS) Forum
Honolulu District Commander Lt. Col. James D. Hoyman answers questions May 23, 2018 during the Defense Environmental Restoration Program for Formerly Used Defense Sites (DERP-FUDS) Forum held with organizations and community officials throughout Hawaii. Honolulu District’s area of responsibility under DERP-FUDS covers the State of Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI), and U.S. Pacific island possessions. For nearly three years the Corps has been conducting an initiative to educate property owners about the history of their properties and what actions they can take to reduce any potential risks. USACE executes the FUDS Program on behalf of the U.S. Army and Department of Defense. The U.S. Army and DOD are dedicated to protecting human health and the environment by investigating and, if required, cleaning up potential contamination or munitions that may remain on these properties from past DOD activities.
