A total of 13 sites at Homestead Air Force Base AFB were identified by the Phase I Installation Assessment as having a potential for environmental contamination. These 13 sites were ranked using the Hazardous Assessment Rating Methodology HARM and the top eight ranked sites were recommended for monitoring under Phase II. Two additional sites, from the original 13 sites, the leak at Pump Station No. 9 SP-5 and the Residual Pesticide Disposal Area P-3, were added by USAFOEHL to the Phase I recommendations for monitoring making a total of 10 sites which received Phase II confirmation investigation. Two sites SP-4 and SP-6, located near the west gate, in close proximity to one another, are indistinguishable from each other based on the groundwater analysis results. these are combined into a single zone for Phase II, Stage 2 recommendations. Nineteen 2-inch groundwater monitoring wells were installed into the upper Biscayne aquifer during Phase II, Stages. These, along with three existing wells, were sampled, with samples being shipped to both OEHL and SAIC laboratories. Soil samples were collected at three sites, and sediment samples at two.
