This Technical and SamplingAnalysis Plan T SA supports the environmental studies to be completed by EA Engineering, Science and Technology, Inc. EA at specific sites located within the area identified for Base Closure at Fort Meade, Maryland. EA is conducting this work for the U.S. Army Toxic and Hazardous Materials Agency USATHAMA under Contract No. DAAAl5-88-D-0005, Modification 000102. This Plan in conjunction with separate Safety and Health, Resource and Data Management, and Quality Assurance Plans form the framework upon which this project will be conducted. Fort Meade has been a permanent U.S. Army installation since 1917. It is located on approximately 13,000 acres in northwestern Anne Arundel County, Maryland. In December, 1988, the Secretary of Defenses Commission issued a Base Closure and Realignment and this report identified 9,000 acres for closure and realignment. Fort Meade is situated almost equidistant between Baltimore, Maryland and Washington, D.C. Figure 1-1. Figure 1-2 is a map of the Fort Meade area and can be found in the back pocket of this plan. This figure shows the division between the Cantonment area and the land identified for closure plus the relative locations of- the sites to be studied during this project. The Cantonment area, which occupies the northernmost one-third of the installation contains administrative, recreational and housing facilities. The Base Closure Parcel BCP encompasses the southernmost two-thirds of the installation. This area is largely wooded and contains the active sanitary landfill, an inactive clean fill dump, three inactive sanitaryrubble fill areas, Tipton Airfield, numerous underground storage tank sites, four water supply wells and associated distribution system. Vast land areas are used for training troops. Virtually all of the BCP has been used as range and impact areas over the years. An additional
