Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton
Federal Facilities Agreement
In 1990, the Department of the Navy (DON), Marine Corps, and regulatory agencies entered into a Federal Facilities Agreement (FFA) for MCB Camp Pendleton. The FFA is a legally binding document that outlines the schedule for completing the investigation and clean up of sites at the Base. Parties to the FFA included the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC), California Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB), and the Department of the Navy (DON). The FFA specifies the working relationships among the Navy and each agency.

The parties to the FFA initially assigned the 74 identified Installation Restoration (IR) Sites at the base to four groups (Groups A, B, C, and D), based on each site's potential impact to human health and the environment. Those sites that potentially posed the most significant threat were placed into Group A and were investigated first, and those sites with the lowest potential for such impacts were placed into Group D and were investigated last. Subsequently, the IR Sites were divided into Operable Units (OUs) based on similarities, such as types of environmental issues, selected cleanup methods, and/or geographic location.
