Title: Installation-restoration program. Records search, Newark AFS, Ohio

Abstract

Since 1962, many hazardous and potentially hazardous wastes have been generated by industrial operations in Building 4 at Newark AFS. Dirty freon is recycled through a recovery still inside the building and reused. A beryllium dust collection system is located on the east side of Building 4. The collected dust is encapsulated in cement and sent off-station for disposal. Twelve hazardous materials storage or staging areas were identified. During interviews, it was determined that large quantities of dirty freon had been dumped along the entire perimeter fence line and in particular two specific locations. An additional spill site was located in the area at the north-east corner of Building 4 near the location of the virgin freon tanks. An unknown amount of spent battery acid and spent solvents were spilled in this area between 1962 and 1964.

  • This report provides the Installation-Restoration Program (IRP) Phase I-Records Search for Air Force Plant 36, Evendale, Ohio. This is a report of a study conducted to identify past potentially hazardous-material disposal sites. Interviews and document searches were conducted to determine sites that were potentially contaminated.
  • This report provides the Installation Restoration Program (IRP) Phase I-Records Search for Air Force Plant 85, Columbus, Ohio. This is a report of a study conducted to identify past potentially hazardous-material disposal sites. Interviews and document searches were conducted to determine sites that were potentially contaminated.
  • Conclusions are: 1) Information obtained through interviews with 17 past and present installation personnel, installation records, shop folders, and field observations indicate that the Des Monies ANG Installation property has been used for disposal of small quantities of hazardous material in the past. 2) No evidence of environmental stress resulting from past disposal practices was observed at the Des Moines ANG installation. 3) In the priority listing of the three rated sites and their overall scores, the Facility 105 Vehicle Maintenance Fuel Tank, and the existing fire department training area, exhibit the most-significant potential (relative to the other Des Moinesmore » ANG Installation sites) for environmental concerns. 4) The old fire department training area located at Facility No. 228, is not considered to present significant concern for adverse effects on health or the environment.« less
  • The Department of Defense (DOD) has developed a program to identify and evaluate past hazardous material disposal sites on DOD property, to control the migration of hazardous contaminants, and to control hazards to health or welfare that may result from these past disposal operations. This program is called the Installation Restoration Program (IRP). The IRP has four phases consisting of Phase I, Initial Assessment/Records Search; Phase II, Confirmation and Quantification; Phase III, Technology Base Development; and Phase IV, Operations/Remedial Actions. Engineering-Science (ES) was retained by the United States Air Force to conduct the Phase I, Initial Assessment/Records Search for Castlemore » AFB with funds provided by the Strategic Air Command (SAC).« less
  • Department of Defense (DoD) policy, directed by Defense Environmental Quality Program Policy Memorandum is to identify and fully evaluate suspected problems associated with past hazardous material disposal sites on DoD facilities, control the migration of hazardous contamination from such facilities, and control hazards to health and welfare that may have resulted from these past operations. The Bergstrom AFB records search included a detailed review of pertinent installation records, contacts with 12 government organizations for documents relevant to the records search effort. Activities conducted during the onsite base visit included interviews with 43 past and present base employees, gorund tours ofmore » base facilities, a detailed search of installation records, and a helicopter overflight to identify past disposal areas. No direct evidence was found to indicate that migration of hazardous contaminants exists within or beyond Bergstrom AFB boundaries.« less
