Abstract : The scope of the investigation included: four soil samples at Site No. 6 (South Fire Department Training Area); ten soil borings with continuous soil sampling to 20 feet, at Site No. 5 (Waste POL Disposal Trenches); eight soil borings to 2 feet at Site No. 4 (Waste POL Application Area), four soil borings, with continuous soil sampling to 20 feet, at Site No. 7 (North Fire Department Training Area); and water quality samples at all active Base production wells. All soil and water samples selected for analysis were analyzed in accordance with Standard USEPA Analytical Protocols. Shallow soil conditions determined at LAFB indicate that levels of potential contaminants are low at most sites. The exception to this conclusion is Site No. 7, the North Fire Department Training Area, where VOA contaminants were detected at higher levels and deeper depths than at the other sites. Water quality testing was done only on Base Production wells, and water quality data for the species tested are generally good. The exceptions to this conclusion are Wells No. 4 and 10, where the concentrations of 1,2-dichloroethane were 0.0014 and 0.0108 parts per million, respectively.
