Abstract:

This report presents the results of the Phase I Remedial Investigation RI conducted at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant LCAAP. The objectives of this RI have been achieved through an extensive sampling and analysis program and evaluation of the presence, magnitude, and in most cases, extent of ground water, surface water, sediments and soils contamination. Many of the same chemicals suspected of being disposed in potential source areas were found in ground water samples from water wells, ground water collected from monitoring wells installed across the plant, surface water, and sediment samples collected in ditches and sumps and sump outflow sediment samples. explosives such as RDX and HMX and heavy metals such as arsenic, beryllium, cadmium, chromium, copper, lead, nickel, silver, and zinc were identified as chemicals of potential concern in nearly all media sampled. Volatile contaminants were identified as chemicals of concern in media that were collected near suspected solvent disposal source areas. The analytical information has been used to evaluate the potential environmental impact and risk to public health and welfare. Recommendations have been made to further evaluate the extent of contamination and source characterization at specific areas.
