Abstract : The Department of Defense (D0D) has developed a program to identify and evaluate past hazardous material sites on D0D 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 is a four-phase program consisting of: Phase I, Initial Assessment/Records Search, Phase II, Problem Confirmation; Phase III, Technology Base Development and Phase IV, Operations. This report has the goal of the first phase of the program to identify the potential for environmental contamination from past waste disposal practices at Hancock Field and to assess the probability of contaminant migration beyond the installation boundary. The activities undertaken by Engineering-Science (ES) in Phase I included the following: (1) Reviewed site records; (2) Interviewed personnel familiar with past generation and disposal; (3) Inventoried wastes; (4) Determined quantities and locations of past hazardous waste storage, treatment and disposal; (5) Evaluated disposal practices and methods; (6) Conducted field inspection; (7) Gathered pertinent information from federal, state and local agencies; (8) Assessed potential for contamination; and (9) Determined potential for hazardous contaminants to migrate.
