ESCA Munition Response Areas

The ESCA areas were combined into nine munition response areas (MRAs) consolidated into four Groups and the Interim Action Ranges according to similar pathway-to-closure characteristics. This page presents some of the characteristics of the Groups and the Interim Action Ranges, relevant documentation, and land use restrictions.

Group 1

Includes the Seaside and Parker Flats MRAs. Munitions responses (removal) have been completed for both MRAs in accordance with the intended reuses. Among the proposed reuses for this group are residential and non-residential development and habitat reserve. 

For a much more detailed description of both MRAs, the cleanup, proposed reuses and land use controls, see the Proposed Plan, Record of Decision and Land Use Control Implementation Plan / Operation & Maintenance Plan for Group 1.
