Abstract : The purpose of the BRA is twofold. First, the BRA provides an evaluation of the potential threat to human health and the environment associated with the release or potential release of constituents of concern from the ravines and Beach Area study areas of the Surplus OU at Fort Sheridan. The primary objective of this evaluation is to identify constituents of potential concern (COPCs) and exposure pathways, conduct a toxicity assessment for each COPC, conduct an exposure assessment, and characterize potential risks to human and environmental receptors. The BRA summarizes and interprets data collected during the RI to characterize the COPCs, describe constituent migration pathways, identify potential human and environmental exposure pathways, and assess current and future adverse effects on human health and the environment under the no action alternative. The second purpose of the BRA is to evaluate the need for a feasibility study (FS). This evaluation focuses on an evaluation of those potential risks greater than the acceptable range. This analysis will identify those constituents of concern and the affected media that drive the need for an FS.
