Abstract : The US Air Force is requesting public comments on this Proposed Plan for cleanup of PCB contaminated soil. This is an interim measure to address soil contamination at McClellan Air Force Base (McAFB) located near Sacramento, California. The public comment period begins June 16, 1993 and ends July 16, 1993. A public meeting will be held on June 30, 1993 to talk about the proposal, hear public concerns, answer questions and receive public comments. The Air Force's preferred cleanup option for PCB contaminated soil is to cap the area described as Operable Unit (OU) B1. Because of limited proven technologies developed to destroy contaminants such as PCB, capping is considered to be the best solution to address this contamination. As part of the Air Force's cleanup efforts at McClellan, a search for cleanup technologies for PCB contaminated soil will continue.
