Abstract : The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976 (RCRA) was promulgated to regulate the generation, transportation, storage, treatment and disposal of hazardous wastes. Simultaneous to the passage of RCRA, the Department of Defense (DOD) devised a Comprehensive Installation Restoration Program (IRP) to identify, report and correct potential environmental deficiencies that could result in ground-water contamination and probable migration of contaminants beyond DOD installation boundaries. The IRP has been developed as a three phase program: Phase I - Problem Identification/Records Search; Phase II - Problem Confirmation and Quantification; and Phase III - Corrective Action. Engineering-Science (ES) was contracted to conduct Phase I of the IRP for Myrtle Beach Air Force Base (AFB). The on-site portion of Phase I was performed at Myrtle Beach AFB June 29 through July 2, 1981. During this period formal interviews were conducted with key base personnel familiar with past waste disposal practices, and file searches were performed for identified facilities which have generated, handled, transported, and disposed of waste materials.
