Abstract : This report presents the results of the Installation Restoration Program (IRP) Phase I records search for Suffolk County Air Force Base (Retired) in Westhampton Beach, New York. The study focuses on two disposal sites that are currently located on the now Suffolk County Airport. The base was deactivated in 1970 and turned over to the county for their use. Major emphasis was placed on investigation of past operations and disposal practices of the Air Force at the former Air Force Base during its period operations and disposal practices of the Air Force at the former Air Force Base during its period of operation from 1951 to 1970. In addition, a study was made on the Air National Guards past waste generation and disposal practices at the Suffolk County Airport during the period between 1971 and 1987. The Phase I study concludes that, based on report findings, no hazardous wastes were disposed of at either landfill site during occupation by the Air Force or the Air National Guard. However, the potential for hazardous waste to have been disposed of at the site exists; the parties responsible for the disposal are unknown.
