Abstract:

The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976 RCRA was promulgated to regulate the generation, transportation, storage, treatment and disposal of hazardous wastes. Simultaneous to the passage of RCRA, the Department of Defense DOD devised a Comprehensive Installation Restoration Program IRP to identify, report and correct potential environmental deficiencies that could result in ground-water contamination and probable migration of contaminants beyond DOD installation boundaries. The IRP has been developed as a three phase program Phase I - Problem IdentificationRecords Search Phase II - Problem Confirmation and Quantification and Phase III - Corrective Action. Engineering-Science ES was contracted to conduct Phase I of the IRP for Myrtle Beach Air Force Base AFB. The on-site portion of Phase I was performed at Myrtle Beach AFB June 29 through July 2, 1981. During this period formal interviews were conducted with key base personnel familiar with past waste disposal practices, and file searches were performed for identified facilities which have generated, handled, transported, and disposed of waste materials.
