Abstract : As part of the USAF Installation Restoration Program (IRP),seven sites on Holloman Air Force Base, New Mexico, were investigated to determine the presence of hazardous material contamination resulting from past handling and disposal practices. The seven sites investigated were the existing main base landfill, Building 301-Aircraft Maintenance Hangar, the old AGE refueling station, a sodium arsenite spill site, a chromic acid spill site, a collapsed sewer line from the primate research area, and the fire department training area. Field investigations consisted of installation and logging of monitor wells and soil borings. Ground water and soil samples were subject to chemical analysis for heavy metals , TOC, TOX, oil and grease, phenolics, pesticides, and tritium and carbon-14. Contamination is indicated at the main base landfill, Building 301, and the old AGE refueling station. Additional sampling and analyses are recommended to define the nature, extent, and potential for migration of contaminants at those sites. Keywords: Pollution abatements; Hazardous materials.
