Abstract:

The field demonstration at the Joliet Army Ammunition Plant JAAP took place from July 10 through August 3, 1995. The demonstration was conducted in partnership with the Army Environmental Center ABC Installation Restoration Program IRP and ABCs Technology Development Program TDP. ABCs TDP supported researchers from Tufts University who demonstrated innovative field analytical techniques for the analysis of soil samples for TNT and tetryl. OHM, Inc., was the contractor to ABCs IRP for the JAAP project and was responsible for implementing the adaptive sampling program at selected JAAP sites. The problem of soils contaminated with explosives is extremely important from the Armys perspective. The Army has 28 ordnance manufacturing facilities with soil contamination problems very similar to those found at JAAP. Any enhancement in the characterization and restoration process at these facilities could result in significant time and cost savings.
