News Releases

TUPELO, MS:  The National Park Service (NPS) announces the availability of the Administrative Record File for public review on the Meriwether Lewis Firing Range Site. The firing range is located on the north side of the Natchez Trace Parkway near Milepost 378, approximately 8 miles south of the Meriwether Lewis Monument and Campground, and has not been used since 2016. The site will be evaluated for potential presence of contaminants.

The Administrative Record includes documents that the NPS will use to select a Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) response action if necessary. The Administrative Record File currently includes the Preliminary Assessment/Site Inspection Report. The Administrative Record will be updated to include other documents considered in the selection of a cleanup action, if required, including the Engineering Evaluation/Cost Analysis (EE/CA) report, comments submitted by interested persons, NPS responses to significant comments, and the EE/CA approval memorandum.
