Abstract : The Army was requested to investigate allegations that canisters of UDMH, a missile starter fuel for the Nike-Ajax system, were buried at one or more of the five former Nike launcher sites in Rhode Island. This report documents the survey/cleanup operations conducted at Foster, Coventry, and North Smithfield. Three canisters containing liquid were found at North Smithfield and incinerated onsite. One empty canister was found at Foster. One full can and one empty can were found at Coventry; the full canister was incinerated onsite. Surveys are now complete. (Author)
