The former Santa Catalina Island Bombing Area is one of many former military installations throughout the United States that will be reviewed under the Department of Defense's Munitions Response Site Prioritization Protocol. This protocol is used to assess sites that may have unexploded ordnance, discarded military munitions or munitions constituents, and to assign priorities for any additional investigation or munitions removal that may be required. The evaluation,criteria, including types of munitions that maybe present, ease df access to the site and number of people living near the site, are available for public review in the Site Inspection Report.
