Abstract : The Department of Defense (DOD) has developed a program to identify and evaluate past hazardous material 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). Buckley ANGB is located in Aurora, Colorado. Buckley was activated in 1942 and has operated under Army, Navy, and Air National Guard command. The primary mission of the base is to train Air National Guard personnel. The following conclusions have been developed based on the results of the project team's field inspection, review of base records and files, and interviews with base personnel. Six sites were determined to have a moderate potential for migration of contaminants. These are as follows: Fire Training Area No. 2; Oil Pit; Base Dump; Fire Training Area No. 3; Fire Training Area No. 1; and Storm Drainage System at Building 801. Two sites were determined to have a low potential for contaminant migration. These are as follows: Sludge drying bed; and Army aircraft burial site.
