The wetlands and green areas of the Naval Base, Norfolk leaving the Camp Allen Landfill are some of the many watershed areas of the Bousch Creek Culvert. The complex Bousch Creek Culvert, is a large man-made waterway beneath Naval Base, Norfolk. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has begun to show an increasing interest in ecological issues related to the Installation Restoration Program at Naval Base, Norfolk. In particular, the members of the EPA Region III Biological Technical Assistance Group (BTAG) were interested in the Camp Allen Landfill. A Removal Action at the Camp Allen Landfill was successfully completed. In 1994, buried drums containing waste solvents were excavated from the Camp Allen Landfill area and disposed at a permitted hazardous waste landfill. The excavation of Fire Debris and drums of solvents lasted four months longer than expected and included almost twice as much volume of waste than was expected. Excavation was continuous until clean soils where found. In 1997 an engineering evaluation/cost analysis (EE/CA) was completed for a PCB removal action at the Camp Allen Salvage Yard. Approximately 1,000 cubic yards of contaminated soil was removed and disposed offsite in Summer, 1998.
The first WW II Seabee recruits were the men who helped build Boulder Dam, America's highways and New York City skyscrapers. At Naval Construction Training Centers and Advanced Base Depots established on the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, Seabees were taught military discipline and the use of light arms. After completing three weeks of boot training at Camp Allen, and later its successor, Camp Peary, both in Virginia, the Seabees were formed into construction battalions or other types of construction units. At the outset of the War, the preliminary training of the Seabees had been carried out at various Naval Training Stations throughout the country. Soon, however, all preliminary and advanced specialized training for them was conducted at Camp Allen and Camp Bradford. Both were an integral part of the Naval Operating Base at Norfolk.
