Abstract:

EA Engineering, Science, and Technology, Inc., under Contract No. DAAA15-85-C0O82 to the U.S. Toxic and Hazardous Materials Agency USATHAMA, is performing an environmental reassessment of the U.S. Army Training Center, Fort Dix, New Jersey. As part of the reassessment, limited onsite sampling and analysis will be completed. The following report summarizes work completed to date, establishes site information, and concludes with the recommended Sampling Design Plan. The Post, approximately 32,600 acres, is a major training facility, in operation since World War I. Based on a review of available data and onsite investigation of over 40 sites by the Installation Reassessment Team, 14 areas have been chosen for additional sampling. The purpose of this sampling is to confirm or disprove suspected contamination. Because ground-water contamination is suspected at 8 sites, a total of 28 monitoring wells will be installed to sample ground water. Contaminated soils are suspected at one site and 10 soil samples will be collected. Abandoned underground storage tanks are suspected in five areas which are slated for electromagnetic surveys. This report details the available background information on these sites and provides the justification and methodology for drilling, sampling, and sample analysis.
