Abstract : As part of the USAF Installation Restoration Program (IRP), five sites on Mountain Home Air Force Base, Idaho, were investigated to determine the presence of hazardous material contamination resulting from past handling and disposal practices. The five sites investigated were the Lagoon Landfill, B Street Landfill, the fire training area, a fuel hydrant system leak area, and the Entomology Shop yard. Investigations consisted of monitor well installations at the two landfills and soil borings at the other three sites. Ground water and soil samples were subjected to chemical analyses for screening level parameters. Indication of low-level contamination was found in the ground water below both landfills land in the soils of the fire training area. Additional sampling and analyses are recommended to define the nature of the contamination at those sites. (Author)
