Formerly Used Defense Site

Formerly Used Defense Sites (FUDS) is a U.S. military program which is responsible for environmental restoration of all properties that were owned by, leased to, or otherwise possessed by the United States and under the jurisdiction of the Secretary of Defense. There are over 9,800 sites in the United States that have been reviewed by the U.S. military for evidence of contamination by the Department of Defense; over 2,650 of these properties were determined to be in need of environmental cleanup and restoration, at an estimated cost of $18 billion.[1][2][3][4][5]

The University of California, San Diego contains a 400-acre (1.6 km2) FUDS site, which was known as Camp Calvin B. Matthews.[6]
