Abstract:

The specific task was to determine whether environmental contamination of groundwater or surface water had resulted from waste handling and disposal at two landfills the South Landfill and the Northeast Landfill near Scope Creek. Environmental samples were collected for each site. Two surface water samples and one leachate sample were collected to monitor the South Landfill, and the Northeast Landfill was monitored by three shallow wells and one sample from Scope Creek. These samples were analyzed for contaminants which could have been produced by the industrial activities reported at Richards-Gebaur AFB in the Phase I--Records Search. One groundwater sample and the leachate sample had phenolics concentrations 4 and 5 ugL, respectively which exceeded the Missouri Water Quality Standards for groundwater 1 ugL. A limited followup study was recommended involving the installation of two additional wells at the Northeast Landfill and analyses of groundwater and leachate samples.
