Appendix II: Cleanup Projects on FUDS Properties

This appendix contains summary data on the 2,213 eligible properties with FUDS cleanup projects. In total, there were 3,736 cleanup projects at these properties. All data are reported as of the end of fiscal year 2000 and were compiled by GAO from Corps data. Further information about the nature of our review and the limitations of these data are presented in the "Scope and Methodology" section.

Of the 3,736 cleanup projects, 284 projects had not yet been scheduled for action as of the end of fiscal year 2000, usually because the appropriate cleanup method had not been decided upon or designed. For the remaining cleanup projects, 1,844 were under way or planned, and 1,608 were completed. The Corps classifies as completed another 774 projects that were initially thought to be eligible but were later determined to be ineligible. The Corps made an administrative decision to classify these projects as completed as a way of closing them out. Because these projects were, in fact, ineligible they are not included in this appendix.
