Abstract:

The Department of the Army and the General Services Administration have recommended that certain parcels of land located adjacent to the new acid area at Volunteer AAP be declared excess. Attempts were made to provide rationale for retention of this area based on the need for a safety buffer zone. This rationale was not accepted by DA since there is no formal policy in regard to buffer zones around areas containing bulk storage of common chemical compounds. This report describes the rationale and methodology used to establish hazard distances from which buffer zone policy can be established.
