Abstract:

This report summarizes the findings of the Preliminary Assessment Site Inspection study completed at the former Gaithersburg Nike Launch and Control Site by EA under contract to USATHAMA. This study was conducted to assess the environmental conditions at this facility relative to past Army operations. The control area has been identified for closure in the Base Realignments and Closures report completed by the Defense Secretarys Commission in December 1988. The Launch and Control Sites are located 1.5 miles apart and a separate, though similar, sampling plan was developed for each site. Ground- water, surface water, surface sediment and soil samples were collected and analyzed for priority pollutant parameters at these sites. The assessment of the data collected indicates that no compounds exceeded current maximum contaminant levels MCL. JES
