Officials want to hear the public’s thoughts about what should be done to remediate a landfill in a Middletown section of Naval Weapons Station Earle.

The three-acre plot known as Site 9 is located within the Chapel Hill portion of the base and is inactive, according to officials. No further action is needed at the site, according to the proposed recommendation, and officials want to hear what the public thinks about that plan.

A 7 p.m. public meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 28, at Middletown’s town hall, where residents are invited to share their thoughts about the plan, according to the public notice.

"Because no significant risk to human health or ecological receptors has been found at this site, the Navy and EPA have determined that a remedial action under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) as amended is not warranted," reads the notice.

If they cannot attend the meeting, members of the public are invited to submit written comments postmarked no later than Feb. 13 to Michael Brady, Public Affairs Officer, Building C-2, Naval Weapons Station Earle, 201 Highway 34 South, Colts Neck, NJ 07722-5031.

Remediation information can be seen at the Monmouth County Library Eastern Branch, 1001 Route 35, Shrewsbury, NJ 07702.

A government entity regulating itself? We know how that goes.
