Welcome to the FORA ESCA Remediation Program website. This site is designed to provide the public with detailed information about the Fort Ord Reuse Authority (FORA) Environmental Services Cooperative Agreement (ESCA) Remediation Program activities.

On March 31, 2007, the U.S. Army and FORA entered into an ESCA, which allowed the Army to transfer approximately 3,340 acres on nine parcels of land (link to map) contaminated with military munitions (also called unexploded ordnance [UXO] or munitions and explosives of concern [MEC]) to FORA. In accordance with the ESCA, FORA is responsible for addressing all munitions response actions for these nine parcels. All other contamination issues, including groundwater, soil, and landfill concerns remain the responsibility of the Army. The ESCA also allows the Army to provide dedicated funding for munitions remediation on these specific parcels of land to FORA.
