The primary objectives of this project were to collect and analyze soil and groundwater samples and to perform an initial characterization of the hydrogeochemical regime at potential contamination sites on Seymour Johnson Air Force Base near Goldsboro, North Carolina. A surficial aquifer was encountered at shallow depths beneath all sites studied on the Base. The surficial aquifer is susceptible to contamination by Base activities because of its shallow occurrence and properties. Groundwater flow in the surficial aquifer is primarily horizontal and discharge occurs into streams and some drainage ditches that practically surround the base. The surficial aquifer is not used for water supply on the Base. Potential users of the surficial aquifer located off the Base would be effectively separated from the Bases shallow groundwater discharges because of the location of the surrounding streams and drainage ditches.
