Abstract : This report contains the sampling methods, analytical procedures, and results of a 2-year study to map the horizontal and vertical extent of Herbicide Orange-derived 2,4-D, 2,4,5-T, and 2,3,7,8-TCDD at Eglin AFB FL. Eglin AFB was used to test Herbicide Orange spray equipment throughout the 1960s. The old storage loading site was sampled in a systematic pattern to produce a total site map. Surface samples were analyzed for TCDD to a detection limit of 0.1 parts per billion. Subsurface samples were also collected from areas known to be 'hot-spots.' These samples were collected from every foot to a depth of 25 feet. Samples were collected with a power auger and split spoon samples. Subsurface samples were analyzed to 0.01 ppb for 2,3,7,8-TCDD and 0.1 ppb for 2,4-D and 2, 4,5-T.
