Abstract : This report showed that no direct evidence was found to indicate that migration of hazardous contaminants exists within or beyond Mountain Home AFB boundaries. Analyses of base potable water supply wells show that these wells meet primary drinking water standards for pesticides and heavy metals. Elevated nitrate nitrogen levels in Well No. 3 are not related to past hazardous waste disposal practices. The elevated nitrate nitrogen in this well is believed to be caused by fertilizer application to the adjacent golf course which may have migrated into the well through a faulty casing. No evidence of environmental stress resulting from past disposal of hazardous wastes was observed at Mountain Home AFB.
