Abstract : Volume 1 of this report contains descriptions of the study area and state and federal regulations, brief descriptions of areas and sites being investigated and the process by which they were chosen, summaries of the proposed RI sampling plans, and a priority ranking of the areas; also included are summaries of munitions loading production and chemicals and radioactive materials usage at PTA. For each site, a brief description of the history, geology, and hydrology is followed by a discussion of the available data and information pertaining to the existing contamination. Based on the existing data, a remedial investigation (RI) action plan is proposed for each site. Each action plan describes additional data needed to adequately characterize and monitor existing and potential contamination at the site.
