The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will host an open house to present information on the upcoming Remedial Investigation / Feasibility Study at the former Motlow Range, a Formerly Used Defense Site located near Tullahoma, Tenn.  The open house will be on Thurs., Jan., 31 from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. at Motlow State Community College in the Marcum Technology Center.  Anyone living on or owning land within the former Motlow Range is encouraged to attend. Corps representatives will be on hand to answer questions regarding the upcoming work.

Motlow Range was created in 1941 to develop firing ranges for light artillery, mortars, and machine guns. Firing ranges within Motlow supported activities such as an anti-tank range, anti-aircraft range, aircraft machine gun range, and various small arms ranges. The investigation will characterize the site for the presence of munitions and ultimately, cleanup options will be developed. Investigation details will be provided during the public information session and it provides an opportunity to have questions answered and concerns addressed.
