Abstract : Department of Defense (DoD) policy, directed by Defense Environmental Quality Program Policy Memorandum is to identify and fully evaluate suspected problems associated with past hazardous material disposal sites on DoD facilities, control the migration of hazardous contamination from such facilities, and control hazards to health and welfare that may have resulted from these past operations. The Bergstrom AFB records search included a detailed review of pertinent installation records, contacts with 12 government organizations for documents relevant to the records search effort. Activities conducted during the onsite base visit included interviews with 43 past and present base employees, gorund tours of base facilities, a detailed search of installation records, and a helicopter overflight to identify past disposal areas. No direct evidence was found to indicate that migration of hazardous contaminants exists within or beyond Bergstrom AFB boundaries.
