WHY? The Army is constructing a groundwater treatment plant and installing new wells and pipeline as part of on-going groundwater cleanup at the former Fort Ord. The location of the construction project is shown on the map below. Construction activities will last through December 2017. The new treatment plant and associated wells and pipeline will be used to treat groundwater more effectively and quickly.  Most of the summertime and early fall work will be at the Fort Ord landfill area.  However in late fall, the current groundwater treatment system is scheduled to be deconstructed.  This is the plant associated with the large blue tanks seen off Imjin Road near the Veteran’s Transition Center and Marina campus of Monterey Penninsula College.
