Published July 26, 2011
SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District will host a public meeting at the public library in Winters July 28 to discuss ongoing environmental cleanup work at D-Q University, located between the cities of Davis and Winters.

“We are approaching the final stages of the cleanup of contamination that was left behind when the site was a small military base,” said Tim Crummett, a project manager with the Sacramento District. “It’s our responsibility to inform the public of what we’re doing, to include any future activities we may have at the site.”

Meeting information:
Winters Public Library
708 Railroad Ave.
6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

To reach the public library from Davis, take Russell Avenue and continue to follow it after it becomes Grant Avenue. Take a right onto Railroad Avenue.

Corps cleanup projects like D-Q University are conducted under the Department of Defense’s Formerly Used Defense Sites (FUDS) program, aimed at cleaning up environmental contamination on properties formerly used for military purposes. The Corps of Engineers is responsible for carrying out the FUDS programs at sites throughout the U.S. FUDS properties range from privately-owned businesses to national parks, and can be managed by federal, tribal, state or local governments.
