Abstract:

This document contains the baseline human health risk assessment and the ecological risk assessment ERA for the Barter Island Distant Early Warning DEW Line radar installation. Fourteen sites at the Barter Island radar installation underwent remedial investigations RIs during the summer of 1993. The presence of chemical contamination in the soil, sediments, and surface water at the installation was evaluated and reported in the Barter Island Remedial investigationFeasibility Study RIFS U.S. Air Force 1996. The analytical data reported in the RIFS form the basis for the human health and ecological risk assessments. The primary chemicals of concern COOs at the 14 sites are diesel and gasoline from past spills andor leaks. The purpose of the risk assessment is to evaluate the human and ecological health risks that may be associated with chemicals released to the environment at the 14 sites investigated during the Ris. The risk assessment characterizes the probability that measured concentrations of hazardous chemical substances will cause adverse effects in humans or the environment in the absence of remediation. The risk assessment will be used to determine if remediation site cleanup is necessary and, if so, to rank sites for remedial action.
