Abstract : A Problem Confirmation Study was performed at seven sites on Otis Air National Guard Base: the Current and Former Training Areas, the Base Landfill, the Nondestructive Inspection Laboratory, the Fuel Test Dump Site, the Railyard Fuel Pumping Station, and the Petrol Fuel Storage Area. The field investigation was conducted in two stages, in November 1983 through January 1984, and in October through December 1984. Resampling was performed at selected locations in April and July 1985. A total of 11 monitor wells were installed and sampled and test pit investigations were conducted at six sites. In addition, the contents of a sump tank, and two header pipes for fuel transmission lines were sampled. Analytes included TOC, TOX, cyanide, phenols, Safe Drinking Water metals, pesticides and herbicides, and in the second round, priority pollutant volatile organic compounds and a GC 'fingerprint' scan for fuel products. On the basis of the field work findings, it is concluded that, to date, water quality impacts on groundwater from past activities have been minimal.
