Abstract:

The USAF OEHL Occupational and Environmental Health Laboratory conducted an on-site water quality management survey at Columbus AFB MS from 18-22 July 1983 at the request of HQ ATCSGPB. Main areas of interest were 1 wastewater discharge permits, 2 outdoor storage of drummed chemicals and chemical wastes, and 3 ambient stream monitoring. The water and wastewater treatment plants, and industrial shops, were also included in the survey. Results of the survey indicated that the wastewater discharge permits need to be revised to reflect current base conditions. The recommendation was made that the outdoor storage practices for chemicals and chemical wastes be reviewed so that the chance of environmental contamination is minimized.
