Abstract:

Sampling activities conducted during this Environmental Investigation EI are summarized below 1 Collection and analysis of soil, surface watersediment, wipe, and radon samples from areas previously identified to be potential contamination sources and 2 Collection and analysis of soil and surface watersediment samples to define background levels of potential contaminants of concern. Areas of environmental significance at the Annex that were investigated during the course of this EI include the 136 storage igloos, the 5 loading ramps 3404 through 3408, the lone debris pile, 21 areas of ground disturbance, 4 excavated ponds, and 10 stream sampling stations. Two of these stream sampling locations were upstream for comparison to the 6 samples collected on the Annex and the 2 locations downstream of the Annex. A background surface water and sediment sample was collected from a wetland pond in the northeast buffer zone, which is of the same wetland class as the 4 excavated ponds, for comparison to the pond samples from on the Annex. Background soil samples were collected from 3 locations within the buffer zone for comparison to soil samples collected on the Annex.
