Abstract : The Phase II Stage 1 Installation Restoration Program Confirmation/Quantification Survey for Moody Air Force Base investigated three suspected hazardous waste disposal sites. These included a former landfill site; a construction rubble fill site; and a petroleum, oil, and lubricants (POL) storage area. In addition, testing of all existing water supply (potable and industrial) wells was conducted. Shallow groundwater monitoring wells were installed at two of the sites. Shallow pits were excavated at the POL site. Shallow groundwater from monitor wells and pits, deeper groundwater from existing wells, and surface water were sampled. Most of these analyses were screening tests (pH, specific conductance, dissolved organic carbon (DOC), total organic halogens (TOX), total phenolics, and oil and grease), which are nonspecific indicators of contamination. Samples near waste sites were analyzed for specific constituents (cadmium chromium, iron, nickel, lead, zinc, dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT), and purgeable organics) where prior information indicated they may be present. Samples from base supply wells were tested for selected nonspecific and specific constituents.
