Text Box:  The kick off meeting at Picatinny Arsenal for the upcoming Remedial Investigation (RI) phase of the Military Munitions Response Program’s (MMRP) activities at the arsenal occurred on November 10, 2010. This meeting was the first technical project meeting for this next phase of the MMRP. The MMRP program is separated into four phases as follows:  

TPP1 – Site understanding and initial 			evaluation
TPP2 – Determine data needs
TPP3 - RI results and reporting
TPP4 – Feasibility Study (FS) 
 
Each phase is preceded by a meeting.  The intent of the meetings is to provide for “early and often” stakeholder involvement and to allow stakeholders to communicate needs or concerns. For example, the TPP1 meeting goals were to provide a “project overview, understanding of site CSMs, DQOs and technical approach in advance of work plans.”      
In attendance were representatives of the following:
Picatinny Arsenal
US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE)
US Army Environmental Command (USAEC)      
US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA)
NJ Dept. of Environmental Protection (NJDEP)
