Abstract:

A Remedial Investigation RI Concept Plan for Picatinny Arsenal in New Jersey has been planned. Based on types of activity and location, the 156 RI Sites identified during the study are grouped into 16 Areas. The plan assesses the environmental impact and identifies additional data needed for each RI Site in each Area. The plan was developed to comply with state and federal hazardous waste and water quality regulations. The plan also provides a ranking of the 16 Areas according to their potential for impacts on public health and the environment. Volume 1 describes the environmental setting of Picatinny Arsenal, discusses applicable federal and state environmental regulations, briefly describes the Areas and the Sites within each Area, provides a ranking of the Areas, summarizes the proposed RI sampling plan for each Site in each Area, and gives supplementary information. Description of the study area includes location and geography, climate, soils and geology, hydrology and arsenal activities. Chemicals and radioactive materials used at this facility are listed.
