Abstract:

Information obtained through interviews with 23 past and present base personnel, review of base records, and field observations indicate that small quantities of hazardous wastes have been disposed of on McEntire ANG Base property. No evidence of off-base environmental stress was observed, resulting from either past waste disposal practices or waste spillage at McEntire ANG base. No direct or indirect evidence of groundwater contamination was discovered. The identified waste disposalspill sites are confined to a relatively small area of McEntire ANG Base and are generally aligned in directions nearly parallel to the anticipated direction of shallow groundwater flow. It is highly unlikely that any of the base activities have resulted in contamination of any off-base ground water supplies which are obtained from the deep aquifer. Rather than monitoring each of the six spilldisposal sites previously identified, only four monitoring locations requiring four wells each are initially recommended for monitoring.
