Abstract : Air Force Plant No. 83, otherwise known as General Electric Aircraft Engine Business Group's Albuquerque Plant, is located in the southern portion of Albuquerque, New Mexico. The plant site is approximately one mile due west of Kirtland AFB. The facility is comprised of approximately 30 major buildings which cover 586,790 square feet within a 33-acre area. General Electric Company (GE) operates industrial facilities at Air Force Plant No. 83. GE has been at Plant No. 83 since 1967, when the Air Force assumed ownership of the plant from the Atomic Energy Commission. GE operations involve the manufacturing of aircraft engine parts, sub-assemblies, and spare parts for military and commercial jet engines. Conclusions have been developed based on the results of the project team's field inspection, review of base records and files, and interviews with base personnel. Each of the five sites were ranked using the HARM system and were determined to have a sufficient potential for environmental contamination to warrant some degree of follow-on investigation. These sites are: North parking lot; Hazardous waste storage Nos. 1, 3, and 4; and Underground cyanide vault.
