Abstract : The major industrial operations at Luke AFB involving hazardous chemicals and wastes include aircraft corrosion control, pneudraulics repair, AGE inspection and repair, the Transportation Division vehicle maintenance shops, and Lockheed Aircraft Services. No direct evidence indicates migration of hazardous contamination beyond Luke AFB properties. The potential for migration of hazardous contaminants at Luke AFB is low. As a result of large-scale off-based agricultural withdrawals, a large cone of depression has formed around the Luke AFB area. Consequently, ground water flows toward Luke AFB from all directions. Disposal sites were designated as areas showing the most significant potential (relative to other Luke AFB sites) for contaminant migration. Other environmental concerns include the base drainage ditch effluents (subsidence fissures) and the base sewage treatment plant effluent (discharge to the Agua Fria River). To verify that hazardous contaminant migration is not a problem at Luke AFB Site No. 5, a limited Phase II program is advisable. An in-house environmental monitoring program is recommended.
