Abstract:

Seven sites in two zones were investigated during this Phase II, Stage 2 effort at Hancock Field. The sites included one fire training area, three disposal sites, two storage sites, and one spill site. A soil gas survey was conducted at one site and geophysical surveys magnetometry were conducted at two sites. Fifteen new ground water monitoring wells were installed. Samples of wastes, ground water, surface water, sediments, and soils were collected and submitted for laboratory analysis. No significant health risk is posed by the presumably site-related metals found in sediments at the two disposal sites. Low concentrations of pesticides were detected in soils around one site, but no significant health risk is posed by these constituents. Sediments, and to a lesser extent surface water, below one site contained residues of organic materials, but pose no significant health risk. Organic compounds also were found in soils but the concentrations found pose no significant risk. Site related organic compounds were detected in soils immediately surrounding the fire training area but no significant health risk is posed. No further action is recommended for all seven sites investigated during this effort.
